Paricutin Mexico

Joey​ ​Scherlin

Paricutin​ ​is​ ​a​ ​dangerous​ ​volcano​ ​in​ ​Mexico.​ ​A​ ​Farmer​ ​was​ ​out

farming​ ​one​ ​day​ ​when​ ​he​ ​noticed​ ​a​ ​Mountain​ ​was​ ​building​ ​up​ ​in​ ​his​ ​back

lawn.​ ​He​ ​watched​ ​it​ ​for​ ​two​ ​years​ ​then​ ​it​ ​was​ ​a​ ​volcano​ ​and​ ​it​ ​erupted​ ​for​ ​a

whole​ ​eight​ ​years​ ​straight.

This​ ​Monstrous​ ​volcano​ ​grew​ ​165​ ​feet​ ​in​ ​a​ ​little​ ​more​ ​than​ ​24​ ​hours​ ​it

is​ ​a​ ​estimated​ ​9,186​ ​feet​ ​tall.​ ​This​ ​volcano​ ​is​ ​now​ ​quiet.​ ​One​ ​of​ ​the

wonders​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world.​ ​Small​ ​tremors​ ​the​ ​past​ ​2​ ​months.​ ​Rock​ ​Fragments

are​ ​all​ ​around​ ​it.​ ​Scoria​ ​cone​ ​or​ ​cinder​ ​cone.

Let’s​ ​talk​ ​about​ ​the​ ​Damages​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Paricutin​ ​Eruption.​ ​It​ ​Buried​ ​an

entire​ ​town​ ​and​ ​damaged​ ​3​ ​other​ ​towns.​ ​It​ ​Buried​ ​half​ ​a​ ​church​ ​in​ ​lava.​ ​233

km2​ ​area.​ ​Very​ ​quiet​ ​right​ ​now.​ ​Scientists​ ​are​ ​waiting​ ​for​ ​its​ ​next​ ​move.​ ​3

people​ ​died.

That’s​ ​my​ ​summary​ ​of​ ​Paricutin​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​7​ ​wonders​ ​of​ ​the​ ​world

that​ ​erupted​ ​in​ ​1943​ ​to​ ​1952​ ​and​ ​buried​ ​a​ ​town​ ​and​ ​damaged​ ​3​ ​of​ ​them.
