Mt. Vesuvius Erupting
Many years ago a volcano called Mt. Vesuvius erupted in Pompeii. People at the time
thought it was just a mountain, but it was an active volcano. Snakes and other animals went crazy before the eruption but the people did not notice the warning signs. When the volcano started to erupt, the magma came through the created and came out as lava. Rising, smoky ash covered the sky and blocked out the sun. Many people died that day.
