The second (BO/Minoan C) eruption phases involved pyroclastic flow and lava fountain activity and the possible generation of tsunamis.

Man-made structures not buried during Minoan A were completely destroyed.

Since no human remains have been found at the Akrotiri site, this preliminary volcanic activity probably caused the island's population to flee.

It is also suggested that several months before the eruption, Santorini experienced one or more earthquakes, which damaged the local settlements.

Research by a team of international scientists in 2006 revealed that the Santorini event was much larger than the original estimate of 39 km If so, the eruption's Volcanic Explosivity Index was 7.

The volcano ejected up to four times as much as the well-recorded eruption by Krakatoa in 1883.

In some places, the coastline vanished under thick tuff depositions.

In others, recent coastlines were extended towards the sea.

The tsunami affected coastal towns such as Amnisos, where building walls were knocked out of alignment.
