Eruption of Mount Saint Helens

The volcano known as Mount Saint Helens, in the southwestern portion of Washington state in the United States, began to erupt on March 27, 1980, after a long period of dormancy. It continued to burble until its first large-scale eruption on May 18, 1980. This violent blast sent clouds of ash and other volcanic debris into the atmosphere and killed 57 people. With the eruption, the mountain’s elevation dropped from 2950 m (9677 ft) to 2550 m (8365 ft).
