The Erruption of Mount. Vesuvius
Transcript of The Erruption of Mount. Vesuvius
By Darcy Amiss & Tabitha Yull
When did Mount Vesuvius errupt?
Mount Vesuvius errupted on the 24th August 79AD.
It propelled a 10 mile mushroom cloud of ash and pumice into the stratosphere.
Volcanic ash and a hail of pumice stones forced the cities occupants to leave.

The Westerly wind protected Herculanium from the intial stage of the erruption.
Shortly after midnight, a wall of volcanic mud engulfed the town of Herculanium obliterating the town, as its citizens fled towards Pompeii.
At 6:30am the following morning a glowing cloud of volcanic gases and debris rolled down Vesuvius' slopes and enveloped the city of Pompeii.
