As Mt. Vesuvius started to erupt, some of the people from Pompeii didn't even know that it was a volcano. When Mt. Vesuvius erupted, the poisonous gas spread around the city of Pompeii. The ash that was coming out of the volcano made a huge cloud that blocked out the sun. When the whole sky of Pompeii was covered in this ash cloud, flaming hot chunks of rock came flying towards the city of Pompeii. The smell in the air was like rotton eggs. Lava also poured out onto people too. That was the last time the city of Pompeii ever exsisted. Mt.Vesuvius is still active today and can erupt again.
