like a submarine Pompeii

Hello

It's a documentary about the beginning of life.
The narrator is talking about a volcano at the bottom of the sea.
"The volcano spewed out millions of tons of ash.
The ash sank to the bottom, blanketing everything
like a submarine Pompeii."

I am not getting the idea here.
I know that Pompeii was destroyed by a volcano,
but what does he mean with "submarine Pompeii"?

Thanks
