At a Glance

May 18th, 2022, marks the 42nd anniversary of the worst volcanic disaster in our country’s history — the eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington State. The resulting earthquakes, massive avalanche and mud flows led to the death of 57 people, as well as the loss of animals and a devastated landscape. From both a lateral and vertical blast to pyroclastic flows and air fall, learn about the factors leading up to this disaster, the eruption itself, its immediate catastrophic results and the environmental impacts that continue today.
