Mount St Helens in Washington, USA. On May 18, 1980 an 5.1 earthquake struck Mount St Helens. The noise from the blast of the volanco could be heard as far away as Montana and California.
the North face of the mountain erupted.The eruption lasted 9 hours long.
(what is in the picture is the North side- or what is left of it)
Mt. St Helens is now 8,363 ft tall, 1,314 ft shorter than it was before the eruption.
This picture is a little ashy because it was windy this day and the volcano is still smoking.
