On May 18, 1980 Mount St. Helens exploded with what is the most visible indication of the power of nature that the modern world has ever seen. At 8:32 am the explosion ripped 1,300 feet off the mountain, with a force of 10 million tons of TNT, or roughly equal to five hundred Hiroshima’s. Sixty people were killed, most by a blast of 300 degrees heat traveling at 200 miles an hour. Some were killed as far as 16 miles away.
