    A cruiser named Benares, traveled on April 13, 1815 from Makassar and arrived on Sumbawa on April 18, 1815. The commander recounted that his ship was approaching the coast of Sumbawa, they saw so many black charcoal pumice with a thickness of several inches floating into the sea.

    Not only that, it also saw large wooden sticks like floating burnt marks. Because of the many, making it difficult for Benares to enter the Bima bay. However, when they managed to dock, they saw a ship from Ternate which had been in Bima for several months. Several other large and small vessels were seen to have been swept away and stranded far from the coastline due to wind and tsunami waves.

    When the Benares sailed towards Mount Tambora, they saw that on the slopes the mountain still appeared to flow red. Some others have flowed towards the beach and arrived at the sea.

    However, while Benares was still in Makassar, before April 13, 1815, according to his commander, the sailors heard a very loud explosion. Like the sound of a shot fired from from three to four weapons. Much louder than the sound of the previous explosion. That is why they decided to sail south to check the sound of the explosion.

    During the voyage, they saw a dark and gloomy sky. It was so dark that they could not distinguish between ships and coastlines. Then, volcanic ash began to fall on the deck of the ship. According to him, at that time the atmosphere looked very dark. He said he had never seen such darkness before. Even to see the hands in front of the eye though can not.
    Lieutenant Philips when he arrived was very surprised to see what was happening. According to a note he wrote on April 23, 1815, in Bima, he was shocked and confused because he saw houses and villages that were devastated. Looks really terrible.

    According to records written by William K. Klingaman and Nicholas P. Klingaman in his book Year Without Summer, it is said, twenty-four hours after Mount Tambora erupted, the ash cloud had expanded to cover an area as large as Australia. Then, over the next few days most ash clouds drifted over the islands to the west and northwest of Mount Tambora. When the ash cloud finally left, villages within 32 kilometers of the mountain appeared to be covered in almost forty inches thick volcanic ash.

    Of the many eruptions, according to Raffless, the eruption on April 10, 1815, was very great continuously and thrilling. Meanwhile, on the night of April 11, 1815, the eruption continued and was most terrible. So, according to him, April 10-11 1815, became the most devastating eruption that occurred on Mount Tambora.

    It's midnight time; The sound popped up like a cannon. After all the natural shock; Feels like the world is sinking.
    The break of dawn broke; Allah's wretched disaster is brought down. All people are grieved; Crying all of them.
    The sound of the material is very anchored; The water overflowed with habu. Shouting for children and mother; He thought the world turned gray.
    (Quotations of the Poem of the Kingdom of Bima, Khatib Lukman, 1830).

    The horrifying memories of the events of 10-11 April 1815, until now still stored in the public's memory, are a story going down. They call it the rainy age au. Or rain ash. Not surprisingly, until now the villages and houses of residents stand far from the slopes of Mount Tambora.
