Caption: Tree destroyed by a volcanic eruption. This shattered tree trunk was destroyed by the 1980 eruption of the Mount St Helens volcano, which is in Washington State, USA. This enormous eruption took place on 18 May 1980, following months of volcanic activity. The bulging northern face of the volcano collapsed and a massive pyroclastic flow erupted northwards, leaving a large gap in the crater that formed. The volcano was reduced in height by 400 metres, hundreds of square kilometres of forest were destroyed and 57 people died. Much of the area around the volcano has yet to fully recover from the 1980 eruption. Recently, starting in 2004, the volcano has become active again.
