What Effect Did This Disaster Have On The Land?
After the eruption mud and ash covered all the buildings. When rescue teams came back after the disaster it became clear no-one could live there. All the houses were collapsing under the weight. After not having anybody live there for years plants and trees grew back, making it hard to believe a city that is now buried under 6 metres of dirt was there. The eruption also changed the route of the Sarno river to its orginal path and raised the beaches level. Pompeii is now a lot different looking in its land form.
