Santorini Volcano

Thera: Some 3,500 years ago, an event of cataclysmic proportions rocked the Mediterranean. The volcano at Thera (later known as the Greek island of Santorini) exploded with what is estimated at four to five times the eruptive force of Krakatoa in 1883, blowing a hole into the Aegean isle. The great seafaring Minoan civilization, the dominant Greek culture of the time, withered away after clouds of ash enveloped its cities and great tsunami waves smashed its fleets.
