Mount St Helens volcano, Quickbird satellite image. This volcano is located in Washington State, USA. In March 2005 it erupted and sent a plume of smoke 11 kilometres into the air. Its most devastating eruption was in 1980, when 57 people were killed and a huge area of forest around the volcano was levelled. The 1980 eruption blew the top off the mountain, reducing its height from 2950 metres to 2550 metres. Photographed on 2nd October 2004.
