"Was reported as far away as Minnesota and Oklahoma, and some of the ash drifted around the globe within about two weeks, right. So. It it affected every atmosphere of the world basically. So during the approximate nine hours of vigorous eruptive activity about five hundred, forty, million tons of ash fell over an area of more than twenty two, thousand square miles the total volume of the ash before it's compaction by rainfall was about point three cubic miles or one point three kilometers cubed. By about five, thirty, pm on May eighteenth the vertical ash column declined in stature but less severe outbursts continued throughout the next several days. So there was still like explosions happening throughout the the basically the rest the rest of the week. The flow deposits were still at about five, hundred, seventy, two, seven, hundred, ninety degrees, Fahrenheit or three, hundred to four hundred and twenty degrees. Celsius two weeks after they arrived. Secondary steam blast eruptions fed by this heat created pits on the northern part of the north fork toodle river, and these steam blast explosions continued sporadically for weeks or months after the emplacement of pyroclastic flows, and at least one occurred a year later on May Sixteenth Nineteen ninety-one. It's just. It's just insane. So the hot exploding material also broke apart and melted nearly all of the mountains glaciers along with most of the overlying snow as in many previous Saint Helen's eruptions this created huge lay Harz. So lay Harrah's volcanic mud flow. And Muddy floods that affected three of the four stream drainage systems on the mountain and which started to move as early as eight a M. Lay Harsh traveled as fast as ninety miles per hour while still high on the volcano but progressively slow to about three miles per hour on the flatter and wider parts of rivers. Mud flows from the southern and eastern flanks had the consistency of wet concrete as they race down, muddy, river, Pine Creek and Smith Creek to their confluence at the Lewis River. Bridges were taken out at the mouth of Pine Creek and the head of swift reservoir, which rose two point six feet by noon to accommodate the nearly eighteen million cubic yards of additional water mud and debris. A can't believe how fast everything was moving to Oh. Yeah it's it's astounding like within an hour all of this stuff was. and was like rushing toward civilization basically. glacier and snow melt also mixed with tougher on the volcano northeast slope to create a much larger layers and these mud flows travel down the north and south forks the river and joined at the confluence of the two forks and the cow lets river near Castle Rock. Washington. At One PM Ninety minutes after the eruption the first mudflow had moved twenty seven miles upstream where observers at weyerhaeuser. Baker saw a twelve foot high wall of muddy water and debris pass. So they're seeing this giant. Of just like mud and old trees yet just like pass by Johnstown flood. Yes. Like the Johnstown flood. exacly. Near the confluence of the titles North and South Park's at Silver Lake a record flood stage of twenty three point five feet or seven point two meters was recorded. Ultimately the May Eighteenth nineteen eighty event was the most deadly and economically destructive volcanic eruption. In the history of the contiguous United States, approximately, fifty seven people were killed directly from the blast and two hundred houses, forty-seven bridges, fifteen miles of railways and one hundred, eighty, five miles of highway were destroyed. Think. Two people were killed indirectly in accidents that resulted from poor visibility and two more suffered fatal heart attacks shoveling ash. US President Jimmy Carter surveyed the damage at the time and said it looked more desolate than a moonscape. How would you even okay now you have to shovel five inches of of. Off of your car. Where are you even going to put that? Where do you with that? It's not like snow which ultimately Mel. Yeah it's. Now there's ash I mean it gets compacted after it rains but that's still like now you have wet fash yeah wow. On May twenty third film crew was dropped by helicopter on Mount Saint Helen's to document destruction. However, their compass spun in circles and they quickly became lost. A second eruption occurred the next day but the crew survived and they were rescued two days after that and they never backed that they never did that again they were like forget this is not worth money. More than four billion board feet of timber was damaged or destroyed mainly by the lateral blast. although at least twenty, five percent of the destroyed timber was salvaged after September of Nineteen Eighty down into the volcano in areas of thick ash accumulation many agricultural crops such as wheat apples, potatoes, and Alfalfa were destroyed and as many as fifteen hundred and five thousand deer were killed in an estimated twelve million and coho salmon fingerlings died when they're hatcheries were destroyed. in total Mount Saint. Helen's released twenty four megatons of thermal energy seven of which were a direct result of the blast. This is equivalent. To Sixteen hundred times the size of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Couple of couple more things. There was a minor controversy in regard to the exact death toll. Okay. The figure most commonly cited is fifty seven right however, there are two points of dispute. The first point regards to officially listed victims, Paul, Hyatt and Del Fair. They were reported missing after the explosion in the aftermath investigators were able to locate individuals named Paul Hyatt and Del Fair who are alive and well However, they were unable to determine who reported Hyatt Missing and the person who was listed as reporting fair missing claimed that she was not the one who did it Since the investigators could not thus verify that they were the same height and fair who were reported missing the names remained listed among the presumed dead. So that's weird. So the second point regards three missing people who are not officially listed as victims Robert Russell Stephen Whitsett and Melanson colleagues. County emergency. Services Management lists them as possibly missing not on the official list according to Mellon's brother in October nineteen ninety-three Kalisz county officials told his family that Melanson quote is believed a victim of the May eighteenth nineteen eighty eruption.

"Deep with avalanche debris. Wow. Yeah and area of about twenty four square miles was covered and the total volume of the deposit was about point seven cubic miles. So it's spread far and wide. Scientists were able later to reconstruct the motion of landslide from a series of rapid photographs by Gary. Rosenquist, who is camping eleven miles away from the blast Rosenquist, his party and his photograph survive because the blast was deflected by local topography one mile short of his location. So just the way the land was me were spared, which is amazing. So. Most of Mount, Saint Helen's former north side became a rubble deposit seventeen miles long averaging one hundred and fifty feet thick. The landslide temporarily displaced the waters of Spirit Lake to to the ridge north of the lake and a giant wave approximately six hundred feet high. So like it created like this, like you throw a rock into a bathtub displays this water and this in turn created a two hundred, Ninety foot avalanche of debris, consisting of the returning waters and thousands of uprooted trees and stumps. So it splashed out and then came back. Some of these remained intact with roots but most had been sheared off at the stumps seconds earlier by the blast of superheated volcanic guest, an ash that had immediately followed and overtook the initial landslide. So the debris was transported along with the water as it had returned to its base raising the surface level of spirit lake by two hundred feet. Oh Yeah. So this landslide expose the magma in Saint Helen's neck too much lower pressure causing the gas charged partially molten rock and high pressure steam above it to explode a few seconds after the landslide started. So like I said before the Bulge as was being displaced release that pressure. So when the landslide happened, the bulge collapsed created this landslide and then because all that magma was suddenly exposed it blew. My God. So basically, it looked like the side of the mountain completely blew out. Okay. So. Before being struck by a series of flows that at their fastest would have taken less than a minute to reach his position. Johnston managed to radio his USGS CO workers with the message Vancouver. Vancouver. This is it. Seconds later signal from the radio went silent and all contact with geologist was lost. Boy. Explosions burst through the trailing part of the landslide blasting rock debris word the resulting blast directed the pyroclastic flow laterally. So pyroclastic flow is basically a fast moving current of hot gas and volcanic matter, and that collectively is known as Teffera so not just lava. A bunch of stuff gas in rock and all that stuff. And this moves away from a volcano at high speed. So that's pyroclastic flow. So it consisted a very hot volcanic, ash and pumice formed from new lava, as well as pulverized old rock which hugged the ground. So that was like rolling along at the bottom. Initially moving approximately two hundred and twenty miles per hour. The blast quickly accelerated to around six hundred, seventy miles per hour and it may have briefly passed the speed of sound. How is that possible? It's just this pressure like it's like popping a pimple like if you're pimple was enormous. And at a lot of pressure behind it, that's just like, wow. Yeah acceleration that happens. It's insane. Initially. There was some debate as to whether Johnston had survived records soon, showed a radio message from fellow eruption victim, an amateur radio operator Gary. Martin. Located near the cold water peak and farther north of Johnston's position. Reporting his sighting of the eruption enveloping the cold water to observation post as the blast overwhelmed. Johnston's post Martin declared salamone that the camp and the car sitting to a southward covered. It's GonNa. Get me to he said before his radio went silent. It's Oh so rough. So there was also a photographer named Robert? Emerson Landsberg who also died in the eruption on the morning of May eighteenth he was within a few miles of the summit. So when the erupted, Landsberg, took photos of the rapidly approaching ash cloud, and before he was engulfed by the pyroclastic flow, he rewound the film back into its case, put the camera into his backpack and then laid on top of the backpack in an attempt to protect its content. Oh, my God. So seventeen days later, landsberg body was found buried in the ash with his backpack underneath the film was developed and has provided geologists with valuable. Historic eruption. So he knew in that moment like well. I can't get away from this I might as well. Record it oh. My God and then try to protect artyom isn't that so dark it's crazy. Now, Harry Truman for his part was alone in his lodge with his sixteen cats. Sixteen cats, think you mentioned that before? No I. Didn't mention the CAST BUT He is presumed to have died in the eruption. Reason. Being is because they never found his body. It is likely that he died of heat shock in less than a second too quickly to register pain before his body was vaporized. Because he was so close he was. He was right in the path like his lodge and everything was right in the path of this explosion. So the landslide and the pyroclastic flow traveling atop landslide engulfed the spirit lake area almost simultaneously destroying the lake and bearing the site of his lodge under a hundred and fifty feet of all cannock landslide debris. Yeah. Authorities never found his remains. His cats are also presumed to have died with him He considered them family mentioned them in almost all of his public statements. Friends hope that Truman might have survived as he had claimed to provision an abandoned mine shaft with food and liquor in case of interruption But they think the lack of immediate warning of the oncoming eruption may have prevented from escaping to the shaft. Before the plot pyroclastic flow reached his lodge rate, which was less than a minute effort began like he would not have been able to get out of that way. His Sister Geraldine said that she found it hard to accept the reality of his staff. I don't think he made it but I thought if they would let me fly over and seem for myself that Harry's logic on then maybe I'd believe it for sure. She said his possessions were auctioned office keepsakes to admirers in September of Nineteen, Eighty Jeez. Yeah I think that was like his family did that to help pay for his memorial service or that kind of thing. So. Back to the explosion pyroclastic flow material passed over the moving avalanche and spread outwards. So this landslide is happening and then as the explosion happens at overtake, it basically overtakes the landslide. So it not only overtakes landslide but also accelerates the landslide and becomes like it's just insult to injury. That's one I mean in in a very small way but. This devastated a fan shape area twenty, three miles across by mid nineteen miles long in total about two hundred and thirty square miles or six hundred square kilometers of forest was knocked down and extreme heat killed trees miles beyond the blow down zone. It was like. The photo showed that huge like mature giant trees where sheared off like they were grass. Wow like cut off almost at the same level of their trunks it's out of control. So at its event. The lateral blast probably didn't last longer than thirty seconds. It would just like a quick boom, but the northward radiating and expanding blast cloud continued for about another minute. and superheated flow material flashed water in spirit lake and north fork toodle river to steam creating a larger secondary explosion that was heard as far away as British Columbia Montana. And Northern California..

"At the time geologist Don Swanson and others placed reflectors on and around the domes and established a cold water one and two observation posts to use laser ranging to measure how the distances to these reflectors changed over time as the domes. So they the ones like tracking the the height of this big bulge and other bulges that had like occurred. Famous for telling reporters that being on the mountain was like standing next to a dynamite keg and the fuses lit Johnston had been among the first vulcanologist at the volcano when eruptive signs appeared and shortly after was named the head of volcanic gas monitoring. So through a careful and analyst, Johnston strongly believed that scientists needed to take the risk for themselves in order to prevent civilian deaths and therefore chose to take part in dangerous on monitoring. he and several other vulcanologists prevented people from being near the volcano during the few months of pre eruptive activity and successfully fought pressure to reopen the area since governor had issued a state of emergency on. April. Third and by mid-may activities seemed to laymen to have been dying down as I mentioned before. there were kept the death toll at a few tens of individuals. Instead of the thousands who possibly could have been killed had the region not been sealed off. So, Johnston supported what's known as the lateral blast theory. He believed that the explosive. Sideways out of the volcano not upward Maj.. So this is common now, thanks to Mount Saint, Helens, and thanks to a lot of research done by the USGS and other vulcanologists around the world but at the time. Vulcanologists thought that because of the way that volcanoes are structured in the way that magna works and all of that stuff that nine times out of ten of volcano is GonNa explode from the top from the summit like a fifth grade science experiment. Exactly like a fifth grade science experiment. And he also believed the eruption would originate from the bulge. He thought this wasn't a symptom. It was like the where it was going to happen. That was where it was going to happen Yep like you said like a pimple like a pimple. Yeah. I consider that being the topic of my like the name of this episode but I felt confuse everybody didn't want anyone. Yeah. So of this, he was more aware than most of the threat of north directed eruption and also to make matters worse he wasn't even supposed to be up there on May eighteenth. Swanson. The geologist wanted to meet with graduate student about to head back to Germany. So he asks Dave if he would take his place for the day. That Saturday the day before the eruption took place Johnston ascended the mountain and went up patrol of the volcano with another geologist named Caroline Dreitzer. And at the time tremors shook the mountain and driver was supposed to camp out on one of the ridges overlooking the volcano that night but Johnston told her to head home and said that he would stay on the volcano alone. He was like you know what? I got this just go home. So while it cold water to Johnston was to observe the volcano for any further signs of interruption and just prior to his departure at seven pm in the evening of May seventeenth thirteen and a half hours before the eruption graduate student Harry Glickman took the famous photograph of Johnston sitting by the observation post trailer with a notebook on his lap smiling and it's a great photo. It's the last photograph ever taken him and it's very he's he's handsome blond seventies looking guy he's got a beautiful beard. He was only thirty years old. He's like sitting on a folding chair in what looks like a rock. Rocky like region and he's got a notebook on his lap and the sun is shining and he's just like it looks like Harry which is like, Hey, dave and he turned his head and smiled any snapped picture. It's very sad. We'll post that picture is very beautiful. So. The second guy we're GonNa talk about is a man named Harry R Truman. No relation to your boy Harry. S. So hairy are Truman was the eighty three year old owner caretaker of Mount Saint Helen's lodge at spirit lake near the foot of the mountain and he came to fame as a folk hero in the months preceding the volcano eruption. To leave his home despite evacuation orders. Okay. Between. March. and May of that year he gained international fame for refusing to leave the mountain and gave tons of interviews to reporters who flooded the area looking to talk to the eccentric. Lone holdout. He was sure that the danger was exaggerated. I don't have any idea whether it will blow. He said but I don't believe it to the point that I'm GonNa Pack Up. He displayed little concern about the volcano in his situation. He said, if the mountain goes I'm going with this area is heavily timber D-. Spirit Lake is in between me and the mountain and the mountain is a mile away the mountain ain't GonNa. Hurt me. It's a mile away a mile away my gosh lease. So law enforcement officials were the word is incensed by his refusal to evacuate because media representatives kept entering the restricted zone near the volcano to interview him. Endangering themselves in the process. Obviously. Still, remains steadfast. He said you couldn't pull me out with Mule team that mountains part of Sherman and Truman's part of the mountain. He told reporters that he was knocked from his bed by precursor earthquakes. So he responded by moving his mattress to the basement he claimed to where spurs to bed to cope with the earthquakes while he slept. He scoffed at the public's concern for his safety responding to scientists claim about the threat of the volcano that. The mountain has shot. It's watt and it hasn't hurt my place a bit but those goddamn geologists with their hair down to their butts wouldn't pay no attention old truman. He he really apparently he was like such a character but he apparently really hated hippies and also the elderly for some reason like he hated old people's like your old man sorry Truman. Afterwards True Truman's niece Shirley. Rosen said that her uncle thought he could escape the volcano but was not expecting the lateral eruption. She stated that her sister took him a bottle of Bourbon whiskey to persuade him to evacuate. But he was too afraid to drink alcohol at the time because he was unaware whether the shaking was coming from his body or the earthquakes. So, Harry had his own set of issues. But anyway. Back. To the eruption. so as Mateen's dawned, Mount Saint Helen's is activity did not show any change from the pattern of the preceding month. The rate of bulge movements, sulfur dioxide, emission, and ground temperature readings did not reveal any changes indicating catastrophic eruption. As, of six am Dave Johnston's measurements did not indicate any unusual activity. So it seemed like it was going to be real quiet day. At eight thirty two am a magnitude five point one earthquake centered directly below the north slope triggered that part of the volcano to slide approximately seven to twenty seconds after the shock. So it happened so that The landslide, which is the largest in recorded history travel that one, hundred, ten to one, hundred, fifty, five miles per hour and moved across spirit lakes, west arm. So it triggered a landslide. Part of it hit a one, thousand, one, hundred and fifty foot high ridge about six miles north. Some of the slides spilled over the ridge. But most of it moved thirteen miles down the north fork toodle river filling its valley up to six hundred feet deep with avalanche debris. Wow. Yeah and area of about twenty four square miles was covered and the total volume of the deposit was about point seven cubic miles..

Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I.
