First of all, I would probably do some research, I personally don't know too much about volcanoes and cities. But if people want to live in a place where there is a threat of a volcano erupting and they know that, then it's their choice if they want to live there or not.
Generally, you can't avoid natural disasters, they are unpredictable and can happen at any time. Eg, no one knew there was going to be a tsunami like the one in Thailand in 2005 and to the extent of the damage. Do you think people should move just because something like that happened there and for everyone to avoid Thailand? I think not, because anything can happen, anywhere, anytime. If a city was built near a volcano, where would the people go? There may not be a volcano but there could be another natural disaster that happens. However cities have been totally wiped out due to volcanoes and yes some cities have been left abandoned because of them...
I think yes, you could bring in the example of pompeii where the entire island city was coated in lava because they wouldn't relocate when their volcano became active
-leaving precious belongings (Can't Be Replaced)
-city can just evacuate and then come back and live there again
-no trouble of moving again and again
-If stay they get killed
depends on how major the threat is,
- how many residents
-where would they go?
-how much would it cost to relocate
