WORLD'S LARGEST
VOLCANIC ERUPTION

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's largest volcanic eruption?



About 75,000 years ago Toba, on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia, erupted so violently that it almost wiped out the human population of the world, reducing it to as low as 10,000.

Toba spewed 2,000 km≥ of debris into the atmosphere creating a nuclear winter that lasted for several year.

The Toba eruption was nothing compared to when the Yellowstone Caldera erupted, presumably the world's largest volcanic eruption, some 2.1 million years ago resulting in an eruption 2,500 times more powerful than the Mount St. Helens eruption.

The Yellowstone Caldera erupts roughly every 600,000 to 800,000 years, with the last being about 640,000 years ago, and when it erupts again it will be catastrophic to our planet.

The largest volcanic eruption in our more modern history occurred in 1650 B.C. when Santorini, a small volcanic island in the Aegean Sea off the coast of Greece, erupted wiping out the Minoan civilization on the nearby island of Crete and coating it with as much as 100 feet of ash.
