Photograph by T.C. Casadevall on July 4, 1994

A masonry animal barn inundated by the edge of the flow. Note the tremendous impact force of the lahar. It was less than 2.1 m deep where it hit the structure. The barn is visible in the aerial photograph of Toez along the edge of the flow in the lower left-hand corner (circle).
