Mount Saint Helens blew up in May 18 1980.
It made alot of ash which blocked out the sun.
Mount Saint Helens killed 57 people.
A stubborn man named Truman didn't leave his lodge during the volcano explosion, he said "Im not leaving my lodge no matter what happens" he died in his lodge by the volcano.
Mount Saint Helens top actually slid of by a 5.1 earthquake.
There was a mud slid after the eruption that filled the rivers. Spirit lake was filled with a lot of debris and was dissplaced from its original location, too two hundred feet in ellavation.
Mount Saint Helens is now a highly active volcano.
About the Blogger
I started my teaching career in South Central Los Angeles teaching in modified to full bilingual 4th and 5th grade classes. Then I moved to WA State where I have taught mainly 6th through 8th grade. I have enjoyed the culture clash but notice that kids are the same everywhere :o)
My areas of interest are science and technology but I also love studying ancient cultures and learning about different peoples and cultures.
