Pyroclastic flow in this situation I believe to be about 5 miles long in that area, and such are incredible fast, going about 430 mph+ as it travels down, for anyone in the direct path of this flow vi

Last I heard 68 people have died.

Some from pyroclastic flows... which sound pretty horrendous.

Pyroclastic flow in this situation I believe to be about 5 miles long in that area, and such are incredible fast, going about 430 mph+ as it travels down, for anyone in the direct path of this flow virtually has no chance to react and or escape. The death toll may be higher because there is also a nearby village that is deemed unreachable, so we may not know until later on. It is very tragic.

That would mean that in 60 seconds. or only one minute ... the entire flow could cover  7.1667 MILES ... or looking at it another way ... the flow could cover 5 miles in 42 SECONDS?

Is that really what you were trying to convey?

Pretty much, those flows are quite fast, mainly in the area in question such took place upon.
