May 18, 1980 – The Mount St. Helens volcano erupted in Washington State, creating an explosive column that rose 80,000 feet into the atmosphere and deposited ash in 11 U.S. states. The eruption melted mountain ice and a few whole glaciers, forming a series of massive volcanic mudslides that reached as far as the Columbia River, almost 50 miles away.
