  • Mount St. Helens is an active stratovolcano located in Skamanija district of the State of Washington, United States, 154 km south of Seattle and 85 kilometres from the city of Portland (Oregon). It is named in honour of British diplomat Lord St Helensa, a friend of Explorer George Vancouver, who carried out topographic work in this area in the late 18th century. Is located in the Cascade Mountains and is one of the volcanoes in the "Pacific ring of fire", which includes 160 active volcanoes. The volcano is best known for a disastrous (5 points on a scale eruptions) eruption May 18, 1980 year [2], in which 57 people were killed. A relatively large number of victims due to the fact that the eruption was of a rare type "directed explosion" (similar to the eruption of the Nameless Hill 1956 years). The process of eruption and spreading ash cloud was captured by photographer Robert Landsburgom, killed in the eruption, but kept the film. As a result of the eruption of the volcano's height was reduced to 400 meters. In culture
