    Heavy eruptions of the Tambora Volcano in Indonesia are letting up by this day in 1815. The volcano, which began rumbling on April 5, killed almost 100,000 people directly and indirectly. The erruption was largest ever recorded and its effects were noted throughout the world.

    Tambora is located on Sumbawa island, on the eastern end of the Indonesian archipelago. There had been no signs of volcanic activity there for thousands of years prior to the 1815 errupion. On April 10, the first of a series of eruptions that month sent ash 20 miles into the atmosphere, covering the island with ash to a height of 1.5 meters.

    Five days letter, Tambora erupted violently once again. This time, so much ash was expalled that the sun was not seen for several days Flamin hot debris thrown into the surronding ocean cause dexplosions of steam. The debries also caused a moderate-sized tsunami. In all, so much rock and ash was thrown out of Tambora that the height of the Volcano was reduced from 14,000 to 9,000 feet.

    The worst explosions were heard hundreds of miles away. The erruptions of Tambora also affected the climate worldwide Enought ash had been thrown into the atmosphere that global temperatures were reduced over the next year, it also caused spectacularly colored sunsets throughout the world. The erruption was blamed for snow and forest in New England during June and July that summer.

    The thousand people were killed by the erruptions, most on Sumbawa island. In subsequent months, more than 80.000 people died in the surronding area from the starvation due to the resulting crop, failures and disease.
