Mount Vesuvius

In 79 A.D, Mount Vesuvius destroyed both Pompeii and Herculaneum with lava and smoke. Mount Vesuvius erupted so big, that not just homes and building were burnt down , but human bodies as well. In addition, a nother catostrophic event was in 1944 A.D. Mount Vesuvius killed 26 people and damage so many airplanes to the point where some were even flipped onto their tails. One peson said " The whole town vibrated, and there was a roar almost unexplainable. Lava rocks could be seen all over the mountainside." In my opinion, Mount Vesuvius could be the most well known volcano ever.

Great Eruption

79 A.D- Eruption and destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum1944 A.D- Eruption and murder of 26 innocent civilians

In 79 A.D the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were covered with spewing hot. The bad thing was, these two cities had bodies covered with lava that are now hardened into life sized souvenirs.


Mount Vesuvius has erupted over 200 times destroying the beautiful land of Italy and killing people many times.
