a 17 year old from pompeii , called Pliny the Younger , wrote in a letter that he first noticed an unusual cloud between two and three o' clock in the afternoon of 24th August 79 CE . From a distance of about 25 kilometres from the volcano , the cloud looked like a pine tree rising from a mountain . He could not tell that it was rising from Vesuvius . Some of the cloud was white , but in other parts there were dark patches of grey . There was no fire shooting out of the mountain that came later . The monstrous smoke clouds dumped debris on Pompeii during the late afternoon and early evening of 24th August . Dust , ashes and rocks fell on the town for about eight hours . Piles of rocks landed on houses and caused the roofs to collapse , and many buildings began to crack . Pliny was the first person to describe the phenomenon that scientists now call a Pliniam event . This is a long , explosive eruption that creates high-altitude column of volcanic material and covers large areas with ash . The pine tree effect , described in Pliny's letter , is called a Plinian column . The driving force behind all of this activity is volcanic gas , which pushes hot , molten material frow below the earth's surface out of the mountain . What we see first are large clouds of smoke and ash. However , Pompeii was not destroyed because of ash and dust . In fact , human remains found above the ash layers show that people went back to their homes after the ash had stopped falling . Because they did not understand how to survive in such situation , people unknowingly placed themselves and their children in the path of death . Total annihilation occurred hours later , when Vesuvius became pyroclastic . A pyroclastic flow can bury surrounding areas , turning beautiful lakes and forests into a moonscape . A pyroclastic flow first moves into valleys and river beds . At the bottom of the volcano , it can sweep away or bury anything in its path , including populated areas . Nothing standing in its wall will survive . This is what happened to Pompeii . The death toll , in Pompeii and sll nearby towns , was about 16,000 . It was one of the deadliest volcanic eruptions of all time
