Intro Sample...


In total the eruption killed fifty seven people, damaged many homes, destroyed bridges and roads creating a huge financial impact.

Some additional interesting facts on this volcano are around what was left after the eruption. The original mountain summit height was 9677 feet. After the eruption the new mountain summit height was reduced by 1312 feet, to a new height of 8,365 feet. An additional feature that was left in the wake of the eruption was a large creator where a summit once stood. This creator was over 1 mile long consisting of a shape of a horse shoe.

I wanted to gather the most up to date news for our visit so I gathered the following recent news: (Wikipedia, 2007)
2004 Activity:
“At 12:02 p.m. PDT on October 1, 2004, the mountain threw a plume of steam and volcanic ash about 9,700 feet (about 3 kilometers) into the air (according to pilot reports), from a vent in the unnamed glacier just southwest of the lava dome. The resulting ash plume was reported to have drifted south to Vancouver, Washington and Wood Village, Oregon, dusting cars with a fine layer of black, sooty ash.”

2005 Activity:
“Mount St. Helens had major activity again on March 8, 2005 at about 5:30 p.m. local time, when a 36,000-foot (11 km) plume of steam and presumably ash was witnessed emerging from the volcano, accompanied by a tremor that measured about 2.5 on the Richter scale.”

2006 Activity:
“On December 19, 2006 an eruption sent a steam plume billowing over Washington State.”
