n. (plural of lahar English)

Usage examples of "lahars".

According to my map and GPS we were circumnavigating a cluster of active volcanoes that frequently spew out lahars (mud avalanches) which, when they impact upon ruts in the jungle that I'm here calling roads, cause logistical problems well into the realm of the absurd.

A few lahars came through the area, wiped out some villages, redirected some rivers, displaced many people.
