25 years ago today

Twenty-five years ago today, Mount St Helens blew its top in one of the most violent volcanic eruptions of the last century. There are images and videos of the event.

Surprisingly, given the total devastation caused by the eruption, life has rebounded remarkably over the last 25 years.

The current eruptive phase has thankfully not been anywhere near as destructive as those events from 1980. But the mountain is once again rumbling and it is probably best to treat it with the respect it deserves.
