How long ago was Pinatubo? Seems like the Phillipines have a big eruption fairly often.
The title of this thread made me think it was another Tiger Woods thread.
Clark Air Force base was 10 miles from the base of Pinatubo....
We were evacuated from Clark Air Base on June 10, 1991 and the eruption took place June 15 at around 1:45 pm because we were having an afternoon muster and it literally went from a sunny hot day as always to midnight dark within an hour....it was weird and thinking back, we probably didnt understand the severity of the situation....the lead up to the eruption were hundreds of minor earthquakes with the largest being 7.9 on the scale.
It was a crazy place to be....after the eruption the majority of the families and personnel were transported to the US, my detachment stayed and worked for nearly two months and the conditions were horrible.
