When the volcano exploded !

As the massive cloud from the volcano went

up into the sky, pumice and rocks fell from

the sky , this knocked out and killed some

people ! Then a huge pyroclastic flow came

and destroyed and demolished any thing in

its path, including people. When the people

were found they had been turned to stone

and rubble in the same position as

they were in when the flow came.
