I learned something today! There’s a scale that rates volcanic eruptions 0-8, similar to the hurricane, tornado or earthquake scale.

The Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) is a relative measure of the explosiveness of volcanic eruptions. It was devised by Chris Newhall of the United States Geological Survey and Stephen Self at the University of Hawaii in 1982.
