No matter how good you are as a geologist or how much time you spend in the field, you cannot discover some things about a volcanic eruption except through people who were in it or nearly so. Here we shall hear about Mount St. Helens’ 18 May 1980 eruption as only survivors and other close witnesses can tell.
