When Mt. Vesuvius erupted, rising smoky ash and falling rocks poured from the crater onto the city of Pompeii. BOOM! Suddenly the petrified people were faced with fear of an uncertain future.
Soon after the massive explosion, more then 20.000 people perished and were buried. A few survivors escaped from the terrifying event. The city of Pompeii has never been the same but many people today still visit the historical site.
