Volcano Eruptions: Italy, New Zealand, New Guinea, Kuril Islands

Post-apocalyptic pictures of powerful Raikoke volcanic eruption

Raikoke Volcano on the Kuril Islands of Russia, south of the volcanically active Kamchatka Peninsula, erupted on June 22, 2019, for the first time since 1924.

The eruption was so powerful that it covered in ash the entire island on which it sits, killing all vegetation and endemic animals. Here some post-apocalyptic pictures of this terrifying ash landscape.
