Considering that 22,000 were evacuated, 14 isn't too bad of a number.

Yeah I guess people who live by volcanoes realise it's a risk, they've done so for thousands of years. Volcanic soils are very fertile so often it's a trade-off. Considering such deadly eruptions happen so rarely, those 14 who died are really unfortunate, considering as you say most were evacuated anyway (which is certain a benefit of modern roads and transport to get you out of the vicinity quick).
