Who Was Affected?
Pompeii was a popular city in the bay of Naples. The population was around estimated to be around 15,000-20,000 and and around 2,000 people were found dead with lots more people guessed to be dead. Almost everybody who survived would of known someone who was killed. This must of been devastating for the survivors. Also all the survivors would of had to find a new home in another city. Another thing that affected people is Pompeii exported goods to other cities all around the Roman empire via the Sarno river. With Pompeii gone another city would have to fill its space producing all the things Pompeii produced. As you can see this disaster would have affected many people all around the Roman empire.
