Dante's Peak - Just Go with the Flow
The volcano in Dante's Peak emits a flow of lava, specifically a fast-flowing type known as pahoehoe, as found in the Hawaiian Islands. Volcanos in the Pacific Northwest do not have lava flows but are instead characterized by pyroclastic flows, avalanches formed by a dense fluid of superheated gasses, mud and rock fragments (which this volcano also has towards the end of the movie).

Actually, volcanos in the Pacific Northwest are Composite volcanos. That means they have lava and Pyroclastic flows.
