The Last Day of Pompeii
On the last day of Pompeii, the people faced a fear of an uncertain future. The ash from the erupting Mt. Vesuvius was so thick, that it blocked out the sun. The ash had poisonous gases and killed more than 20,000 petrified people. Mt.Vesuvius is still active today so if you go to Italy and near that volcano, I suggest that you be careful.
