A plume of steam rises from the crater of Mount St. Helens two years after its devastating eruption. On May 18, 1980, the volcano experienced a lateral eruption after a series of earthquakes which reduced the mountain's height by about 1,300 feet and left a crater 1 to 2 miles wide. The eruption killed 57 people, nearly 7,000 big game animals, and an estimated 12 million fish from a hatchery. It destroyed or extensively damaged over 200 homes, 185 miles of highway and 15 miles of railways.
