Active Volcanos

I wrote about Vesuvio in my previous post and we spoke just different times that it's terrible to live near an active volcano. I thought about the volcanoes in Italy like Etna and Stromboli that are always active, not like Vesuvio and Solfatara in our zone that produce only gas actually, even if Vesuvio, they say, is one of the most dangerous volcanos on the Earth (It's eruption will be as a very powerful explosion.) So I wanted to look for information about other active volcanos.

I found that the name "active" means that this one erupted in the last 10 000 years. Not that it's erupting now like Etna for example. And there are different volcanos like that. Here for example the highest volcano in Russia, Kljuchevskaja Sopka (4750 m).
