Volcano

Other mistake: The subway scene shown at the beginning of the movie during the opening credits is also used just prior to the big earthquake. (00:01:25)

Other mistake: Roark burns his hand on a hot frying pan and drops it to the floor. The dog then immediately wanders in to eat the spilled food. The pan should still be scorching hot after a short time, and yet the dog licks it without burning its tongue. (00:03:30)

Other mistake: Just before the lava begins to flow, the glass in a building shatters and falls on Roark and the doctor but neither suffer so much as a cut. (00:38:15)

Other mistake: When they are trying to find a way to stop the lava from going in to the museum, Tommy Lee Jones has an idea to push a bus up against the museum to divert the lava. The plan works but the lava does not melt the bus like it melted Tommy Lee Jones' car or the fire truck.

Continuity mistake: When the female nurse is in her 4x4 vehicle, she looks in her mirror and sees two fire trucks. In the far away shot the first fire engine overtakes her, then when it cuts back to her it's overtaking her again. (00:34:30)

Suggested correction: This appears to be a not uncommon film making technique where a sequence is shown from multiple angles, and if that is the case here, then it isn't a mistake.

But as we have no way to tell if it is an intentional technique it's considered a mistake.
