Mnt. St. Helens Eruption-- 30 Years Ago

It was thirty years ago today that Mount St. Helens in Washington state erupted, after it was set off by an earthquake. The gigantic explosions were heard hundreds of miles away, entire forests were flattened, and 57 people lost their lives. Check out a gallery of photos from The Big Picture of the volcano and its aftermath.
