What damage did Mt Pelee cause?

When Mt Pelee erupted in 1902, it caused massive damage. Firstly, a pyroclastic cloud (that is, a cloud made up of superheated steam and volcanic gases and dust) rolled down the mountain and covered the city of St Pierre which lay about four kilometres away. The effect was to instantly ignite anything and everything it touched that was combustible. After this, there was a half-hour downpour of muddy rain mixed with ashes. Ultimately, of a population of around 29,000 only two survived. One was a prisoner who was held in an underground cell in the town's jail (and who was later pardoned), and a man who lived at the edge of the city. In August 1902, about 2,000 people were killed when a lava flow from Mt Pelee struck the village of Morne Rouge.
