In the few weeks since the unexpected volcanic explosion that obliterated the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, all hope of finding survivors had been lost. Just a cursory glance at the devastated area shows that it is still red hot smoking ruins, too hot to enter.
The ash in the air, in what has become known as the “warm zone”, penetrates all but the most advanced filtration systems, and even those get clogged quickly. Since the volcano had given no signals of imminent danger, the cities, known for their nightlife, were apparently caught unaware in the first hours of the morning.
However, a man recently discovered in the mountains around Zoar by a scouting party, says he and his daughters fled there from Sodom. He says they went to stay in Zoar first, but were fearful that it was too close to the volcano.
He had seen his wife’s body completely and immediately dehydrated when she stopped for a moment and was enveloped in the caustic blast. The man, Lot Haranson, and his daughters seemed stunned to find people alive and carrying on business, evidently believing that the destruction had impacted more of the surrounding cities.
Of particular interest is Mr. Haranson’s account of volcanic experts visiting Sodom right before the catastrophe. These men warned Mr. Haranson of impending events and told him to alert others in his family. None of his relatives in other parts of the city took the unknown visitors seriously. According to Mr. Haranson, the mysterious specialists had some sort of control over the forces of the volcano.
Whatever methods they were using for this also enabled them to cause blindness in men out on the streets who were threatening them and Mr. Haranson’s family with violence. Mr. Haranson says it all happened very quickly and the benevolent visitors told him to hurry, implying that their abilities to hold back the volcanic activity were limited. No one has been able to locate these strangers for further questioning.
