Acid Rain from Volcanoes - John Seach

Acid rain contains a pH of less than 4 and is produced by rain water falling through volcanic emissions.
The rain, with a pH between 1.5 and 3.5 (pure water has a neutral pH of 7), has the corrosive property of battery acid.
The plume cloud also contains tiny glass fragments that can irritate the eyes and, in rare cases, cause permanent damage.

Dangers of acid rain to local inhabitants
Communities living close to active volcanoes may be affected by drinking acid rainwater.
Gastrointestinal upsets are common in such areas. The long term health effects of acid rain are unknown.
