Mount Vesuvius

Background InfoEdit

Mount Vesuvius erupted in the 79AD.

In the year of AD 79, Mount Vesuvius erupted in one of the most catastrophic and famous eruptions of all time. The Roman vicinities of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Stabiae were affected,[1] and Pompeii and Herculaneum were obliterated.[1][2] Mount Vesuvius spawned a deadly cloud of stones, ash and fumes to a height of 20.5 miles, spewing molten rock and pulverized pumice at the rate of 1.5 million tons per second, ultimately releasing a hundred thousand times the thermal energy released by the Hiroshima bombing.[2][3]
