The 2029 eruption of Mt Vesuvius was a very explosive, and therefore very deadly and damaging eruption. The volcano first blew its top on July 17th, at 1737 UTC, in a Plinian type eruption, sending numerous pyroclastic flows and lahars down its slopes, which caused $255 million in damages, and led to 17 fatalities within Naples, less than 10km from the volcano. The eruption finally finished on August 1st, having buried surrounding areas under 4 meters of ash in some locations.
