The 2137 eruption of the Kikai Caldera was a violent VEI 8 rated Ultra-Plinian rated eruption. Occurring underwater, it lead to extreme lahars, and part of the mountain collapsed into a huge pyroclastic surge, which wiped nearby areas off the map, as well as causing a 20 meter tsunami. 5,365 died, 14,224 were injured, and damages exceeded $35 billion in the area.
