Paricutin Volcano in Mexico unbelievable view

Paricutin Volcano is a cinder cone in the state of Michoacan in Mexico. The fact that the volcano produced its inception is unique in the present. It's also know by Seven natural wonders of the world, and it appears on many time. Parícutin is part of the Michoacán-Guanajuato volcanic field, which covers much of west central Mexico.
Three weeks before the eruption, as the noise of the thunder were heard by people near the village Parícutin rumbling. It really was a great earthquake. The volcano began as a fissure in a cornfield owned by a Purhépecha farmer, Dionisio Pulido, on February 20, 1943. He and his wife witnessed the initial eruption of ash and stones first-hand: "Dionisio Pulido and his wife Paula were burning shrubbery in their cornfield."The volcano grew quickly, reaching five stories tall in just a week, and it could be seen from afar in a month. Much of the volcano's growth occurred during its first year, while it was still in the explosive pyroclastic phase. The nearby villages Paricutin (after which the volcano was named) and San Juan Parangaricutiro were both buried in lava and ash; the residents relocated to vacant land nearby.
