In Feburary 1784 the Pegnitz River flooded the city of Nuremberg, sweeping away houses. It was caused by the eruption of the Iclandic volcano Laki, not only spewing out basalt lava but also belching clouds of hydrofluoric acid and sulfur dioxide compounds into the air. The resulting clouds caused a mini ice-age, causing heavy snow falls and hail large enough to kill cattle in Europe and the Mississippi to freeze at New Orleans. The thaw of the extra snow in the spring caused floods throughout Europe. This view of the devastation was drawn by the engraver Johann Ludwig Stahl (1759-1818) who witnessed the catastrophe.
