      Forty years ago on , at a.m., Mount St. Helens erupted. Blown up along with the mountain was most everything scientists thought they knew about how nature responds to a massive disturbance. Language strains to capture the violence and scale of the blast. The main eruption would last nine hours and kill 57 people. Eruptions of Mount Rainier usually produce much less volcanic ash than do eruptions at Mount St. r, owing to the volcano's great height and widespread cover of snow and glacier ice, eruption-triggered debris flows () at Mount Rainier are likely to be much larger--and will travel a greater distance--than those at Mount St. Helens in

Since , Mount St. Helens has remained intermittently active, and through early and at least 21 more periods of eruptive activity had occurred. Geologists view these periods of activity as eruptive episodes of one eruption that continued through the decade, rather than separate eruptions.
