1815 Mount Tambora Eruption
Often known as ‘The Deadliest Volcanic Eruption in History’, the eruption from Mount Tambora directly wiped out roughly 100,000 people. It just didn’t stop there. Until a few years later, it claimed many more lives due to its after-effects.
Just after the eruption, there was a major change in the climate. It further led to crop failure across Asian countries trailing all the way to other continents. Thus, killing millions due to starvation.
It occurred on 10th April 1815 in Indonesia and is known as the largest eruption that ever occurred in the last 10,000 years!
