Mount Vesuvius covered thirteen feet of ashes over Pompeii and Herculaneum.BOOM!! Mount Vesuvius ( Mount V) was a threat to Pompeii and Herculaneum because they had a varied of earthquakes and that was there to warn them but, they didn’t listen so they got buried but, some people moved after the second earthquake.

Due Date

Let me being on August 24,1879,at 9:03 am in Italy Mount V erupted. Hash-Heated to Death! Pompeii “was” peaceful it was very violent don’t know how if they could see clouds but, really it was ashes falling.( I would have moved right at the first earthquake).

Mount V Erupted

At this time Pompeii people were covered in plaster and some people were in hulled position in their house. There were a lot of people out of there house so it was a lot easier to get plaster on them but the people who were in spa’s and their house were a lot harder to get to but they still got plaster on them.

Building Pompeii Again

This get’s worse the Herculaneum builders were trying to build Pompeii again and then another earthquake hit and the builders quit so, they gave the job to the Herculaneum gardeners and they put in flowers and grass.

Pompeii and Herculaneum

The truth is that Pompeii and Herculaneum never want to live by each other so they wanted to build a wall just if another erupted again but, you can still go but, just watch out if you go and if you did want to go it would take you 5 days if you wanted to go to Herculaneum but, if wanted to go to Pompeii then it would take you 5 days and 4 hours.
