A Volcano Discovered In their Backyard!

On Feb. 20th 1943, a couple of Mexican farmers were surprised to find a fissure in their cornfield. The next day, the cone of the volcano had already reached a height of 164 feet (50 meters. In less than six months, its height had reached 1391 feet (424 meters) and destroyed the village of Paricutin.
