Hi! Welcome to the Mt. St. Helens - How One Event Could Change the World Forever site. This is a website made to show how Mt. St. Helens is a part of all of our lives. If you don't know what Mt. St. Helens is, you can click here.


Mt. St. Helens really is a part of all of our lives. It changed the ways we thought about volcanoes, and let us predict new eruptions all over the world, and save lives. The eruption had ash that circled the globe. In places close to the mountain, it caused night-like conditions for several days. Now, included in emergency kits are things like painter’s masks, things that allow you to breathe even when there is ash in the air.

Mt. St. Helens had an impact that was breathtaking.
