Mt St Helens – 30 Years After The Blast
Tuesday, April 6th, 2010 – 7:30-9:30
After more than a 100-year slumber, Mount St. Helens awoke with fury on May 18, 1980. This was one of the best documented and studied explosive eruptions of our time, and we are still learning! Dr. Brand of the UW will talk about the volcanic activity leading up to the eruption and the sequence of events that day. Come join us at T.S. McHugh’s and ask a volcanologist about volcanic monitoring techniques, predicting eruptions and assessing volcanic hazard and risk in the Cascade region and beyond.
