In the year of 79 AD, on the 24th of August, Mt. Vesuvius erupted near the city of Pompeii in Italy. It erupted and unleashed lava and hot ash that covered the whole city of Pompeii. The rising, smoky ash clouds blocked out the sun, so the city was dark. As the angry and sinister ash clouds and hot lava came pouring out from the crater, it came upon the people of Pompeii and they were killed.
