On February 20, 1943, Paricutin, a lovely cinder cone volcano erupted in a corn field. This church is all that remains of a Mexican town called San Juan Parangaricutiro, located in the Mexican state Michoacan. This town and the neighboring one, also called Paricutin, were covered in lava and ash. No deaths were attributed to lava or asphyxiation and all residents were safely evacuated. The final picture is of it erupting in 1943, it continued to erupt for 8 years.
