There was a roar and a great confusion of noise. Fires leaped up and licked the roof. The throbbing grew to a great tumult, and the Mountain shook. ...

[The] earth shook, the plain heaved and cracked, and Orodruin reeled. Fire belched from its riven summit. The skies burst into thunder seared with lightning.

Then rising swiftly up, far above the Towers of the Black Gate, high above the mountains, a vast soaring darkness sprang into the sky, flickering with fire.

[A] great smoke and steam belched from the Sammath Naur, and the side of the cone was riven open, and a huge fiery vomit rolled in slow thunderous cascade down the eastern mountain-side.

[The] earth gaped, and from deep rifts and pits smoke and fumes leaped up. ... [The] Mountain was convulsed. Great rents opened in its side. Slow rivers of fire came down the long slopes.... A rain of hot ash was falling.

[Gwaihir] ... passed over Udûn and Gorgoroth and saw all the land in ruin and tumult beneath..., and ... Mount Doom blazing, pouring out its fire.
