Dear Mt. Raineer, 5/18/80 Today I eroupted. My lava destroyed forests and bridges. I don't have the orange Hawaii lava mine is like gray, and rocky. Ash flew everywhere in some places there was up to 2 inches of ash. My eruption went 15 miles in the air. I was building up for years and all the presure made me have my eruption. Everyone thought they were safe because they thought I would eroupt up not sideways. Now I am build again and it about 100-200 years.
Sincerely, Mt. St Helens
