Larawang Tribiya

Ang iba’t-ibang larawan ng Bulkang Pinatubo (“Mount Pinatubo’s Many Faces”),
nasa taklob-pahina ng Pilipino Reporter Magasin (Hulyo 21, 1991).
          Ang Mount Pinatubo, na matatagpuan sa malapit sa sugpungang hangganan ng tatlong lalawigan ng Zambales, Pampanga at Tarlac, ay isang dormant stratovolcano na muling naging aktibo makaraan ang humigit-kumulang 600 taon. Nagsimula itong magkaroon ng major eruption noong Hulyo 12, 1991, na tumagal ng apat na araw. Tinatayang umabot ng 12 cubic kilometer ng volcanic debris ang ibinuga ng bulkan at ang abong-alikabok nito ay kumalat halos sa buong mundo.
