Since the Mount St Helens eruption produced 10 million tons of CO2, this means that passenger vehicles in the USA alone emit as much CO2 as a Mt St. Helens eruption happening somewhere in America every 3 days. The transportation sector...Show More Summary
The USGS estimates that 10 million tons of CO2 was released over the 9 hour eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. That's a pretty huge number, but passenger vehicles in the USA alone emit as much CO2 as a Mt St. Helens eruption happening somewhere in America every 3 days. US Passenger Vehicle Emissions Comparable To 1980 Mt. Show More Summary
Scientists are baffled as to where Mount St. Helens gets its lava from. Though the volcano is part of a cluster of volcanoes known as the North American Cascade Arc, it doesn't sit atop a large magma chamber. Follow TI: On Facebook Join the conversation about this story »
The Mount St Helens volcano in the United States has crooked plumbing. Rather than sitting above the magma source that feeds it, the mountain is off to one side.A major eruption in 1980 saw 57 people killed by the volcano, which is in Washington
On May 18, 1980, Washington state’s Mt. St. Helens erupted in what would become the deadliest and most destructive volcanic eruption in the history of the continental United States. The resulting explosion cost fifty-seven people their lives and destroyed an estimated $1 billion USD worth of infrastructure....
“Mount St. Helens is pretty unusual,” said Steve Hansen, about the volcano responsible for the deadliest eruption in US history, which appears to be stealing its fire from somewhere else. Hansen, a geoscientist at the University of New Mexico and...
Mount St. Helens already stands out as one of the most active volcanoes in the Cascade Arc and the deadliest in the US, since its 1980 eruption claimed nearly 60 lives. It's also an outlier in a literal sense, sitting 30 miles west of the volcanoes that neatly line the...
It's been more than 35 years since the last major eruption of Mount St. Helens. Since that blast, much research has been conducted with scientists learning a great deal about one of the most active volcanoes within the Cascade arc, a North-South chain of volcanoes in the Pacific Northwest that formed above the subducting Juan de Fuca plate.
Geologists paired explosives and seismic readings to look for Mount St. Helens’ magma chamber. Here's what they found instead. Continue reading ? The post Explosives reveal Mount St. Helens’ cold heart appeared first on PBS NewsHour...

Mount St. Helens is “recharging” with magma, setting off more than 100 earthquakes in recent weeks — but scientists warn a nearby “sleeping giant” may pose a bigger threat. More than 130 earthquakes have been detected beneath the northwest’s most active volcano since March 14, although none...
On May 18, 1980, a devastating natural disaster created an entirely new landscape across a specific portion of Washington State. We are talking about the eruption of Mount St. Helens, which killed more than four dozen people, as well as thousands of wild animals. Within the domain...

“The volcano is still very much alive.”
Mount St. Helens is very much an active volcano, with new data showing it is filling with magma once again. The U.S. Geological Survey reports that there have been 130 small earthquakes beneath the volcano in the last eight weeks, and...Show More Summary
Mount St. Helens has been grumbling from deep underground, causing scientist to question whether another major eruption is looming. According to a post on the US Geological Survey Facebook page, more than 130 small tremors have been documented in the Mount St. Show More Summary

Mount St. Helens has witnessed over 130 small earthquakes since March 14th, 2016
That doesn't mean it will erupt as it did May 18, 1980. Other groups of earthquakes have happened in 2013 and '14.
