How to use "Erupt" in context?

The word "erupt" is derived from the Latin word "erupere," meaning "to break out, to rise." When something erupts-- such as the sun breaking through the clouds on a hot day-- the sky lightens up and becomes more visible. When something erupts volcanically, hot ash, gas, and rocks escape from the earth's surface.

Eruptions can have a profound impact on the environment and on human beings. For example, an eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980 released a massive amount of ash and smoke that affected air quality in the area for years.
