The town of Pompeii when the volcano erupted.

Mt. Pompeii erupted more than 50 times. Two thousand people died, and the town was abandoned for many years.

When it erupted, more than 2000 people were covered with ash.

In 1748,when a group of explorers discovered the site, they were surprised to find that underneath a thick layer of dust and debris Pompeii was mostly intact.

Pompeii shot millions of tons of superheated lava, ash, and rocks about 22 miles into the sky. That prehistoric catastrophe destroyed almost every village, house and farm within 15 miles of the mountain.
