1943-52 Paricutin eruption
Paricutin was formed as a new volcano on 20 February 1943 in Mexico. A fissure opened on a corn field on the lands of Rancho Tepacua. A new fissure opened and started to erupt lava, forming a new cinder cone and a vast lava flow that destroyed Paricutin village, but spared its church.

1759-1774 eruption (Volcan El Jorullo)
A violent eruption started in June 1959 from a new fissure and lasted until 1774, building the 350 m tall Jorullo cone and several smaller new cones.
