Mount Vesuvius erupted on 24th August, 79 AD. I was sleeping, when my room started shaking. My mother and I took everything we could and we left. I saw a black cloud above Mount Vesuvius, that was getting closer to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Flashes of fire, rocks, ash and lava were flying above us! I could hear people screaming for Help. I felt terrified and very sad. We survived crossing Pompeii and Herculaneum and we arrived at Naples. We had survived this tragedy but so many others were not so lucky.
