40 Years Ago on May 18
It is one of those events that – if you were alive – you likely remember.
Where were you at 8:32 a.m. on Sunday, May 18, 1980?
Monday marks 40 years since Mount St. Helens erupted. Fifty-seven people died, and the way we look at the power of nature was altered forever. This week WSDOT dug into the archives and shared some powerful images from the eruption, and the response, on their @WSDOT Instagram account.
