On May 8, 1902, on the Caribbean island of Martinique, the volcano Mount Pele loosed the most terrifying and lethal eruption of the twentieth century. In minutes, it killed 27,000 people and levelled the city of Saint-Pierre. In La Catastrophe, Alwyn Scarth provides a gripping day-by-day and hour-by-hour account of this devastating eruption, based primarily on chilling eyewitness accounts.
