  • Description

    Volcano erupts. Location of events unknown.

    Disasters. Volcano erupting! A few shots of masses of smoke; steam; whatever billowing out of the volcano. These seem to be shot fairly close to the opening. Then a couple shots of the destruction caused -- a bunch of boards which may have formerly been in the shape of a house lie flat on the ground; while a house next to it still stands. Powerful.
