How is a volcanic eruption a natural disaster?

A volcanic eruption is a natural disaster because it happens naturaly (not man made).

A volcano doesnt start out as a volcano it is a mountain that blows its top.


The eruption above is the city of pompeii. It was destroyed by a volcanic eruption. The city was covered in volcanic rock after the magma dried. It was a natural disaster because noone blew up the top of the mountain and forced lava to come to the surface. It killed all of the pompeii population. Today you can go to pompeii on a tour.
