Volcano City has been the center of new development, and it is getting bigger and bigger! The first highway is already under construction, which will soon be Volcano City's connection to the outside world:
And more development continues down main road, Volcano City is thriving!
But, one day, something would bring this thriving city to a grinding halt.
It was a beautiful Thursday afternoon, and Peter has just got home from school. As he went to the kitchen to get a snack, the whole room shook, literally throwing both him and his mom on the ground.
Mom: "I bought you some snacks, Do you want chips, or cookies?"
Peter: "I'll have chips" (Walks into kitchen)
(low rumpling sound)
Mom: Do you hear something?
Peter: Yeah, it sounds like- (Big explosion, room shakes violently) Whoa! (Censored)!!
They scramble to get back up and run outside, and see everybody on the sidewalk looking at the mountains behind them. Mom and Peter turn around and are shocked at what they see.
A plume of smoke is seen rising out of the Volcano.
The whole city stops. They just stop and look at the plume of smoke and ash rising from the volcano.
Coach: (blows whistle really loudly) everybody out of the field! (people panic)
All everybody can do is watch in awe as the ash gets bigger and bigger, and then another very loud bang is heard from the volcano, shaking the ground. Everybody immediately goes from staring in awe at the volcano, to running around in a frenzy screaming. No one was expecting an eruption from that volcano, so they didn't know what to do. The major ran downhill from his house, and screamed to everyone there: "Everybody into the church!"
About 400 people ran into church, many others ran out into the farm fields. An ordinary afternoon turned into chaos, by the first recorded eruption.
5 PM, ash is now raining down volcano city; the beautiful, blue skies are now dark, choked with throat-clogging, ash. The ash rains down from the skies, making breathing difficult for anyone in Volcano City. Peter, his friends, and his parents are at the church, praying that they survive the eruption. Luckily, the lava is too far away to affect the city, but not the volcanic blocks that rain down from the sky. The citizens can only watch as houses nearby along with stores get smashed by car-sized blocks, and pray that none of them hits them. They could die any minute and they know it.
Fires rage throughout the town, burning houses everywhere. The fire brigade work around the clock to put out the fires, with their new water hoses (no more buckets).
The only concern now was the pyroclastic flow, but thankfully, the flow happened on the other side of the mountain, sparing Volcano City.
Fires were put out, and hundreds of people came out of the church and ran back to their houses to put out their own fires. Peter's house hasn't caught on fire, nor has it been hit by a block. Other than some damage from the earthquake, they were okay. Some weren't as fortunate, as they ran to find heaps of burnt wood that used to be their houses.
7 AM (Next Day)
A beautiful morning dawns over Volcano City, but there was no school, and a lot of people went to the medical community center. The citizens are everywhere cleaning up the streets, and cleaning up the mess. This eruption was a 4 on the explosive volcano scale.
