Weegy: You'll be the first to feel the seismic activity caused by the volcano! This includes not only the eruption, but any rumbling underneath. [ The smoke and the ash will reach you first; even if there's no eruption, an active volcano can still emit harmful pyroclastic material. In the event of an eruption, you will feel the effects the longest (if you're not swallowed by the lava): - airborne pyroclastic material will reach you first - the largest particles (some as big as boulders, if it's a felsic volcano) drop closest to the volcano - the thickest ash accumulates around the volcano - the ash lingers longest in the sky around the volcano, blocking out the sunlight for the longest amount of time in your area. This can be extremely detrimental to agriculture (although the ash is probably extremely fertile, so once everything has settled down, the farmland will be very rich). ]
