Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m. Fifty-seven people were killed. 250 homes, 47 bridges, 24 kilometers of railways, and 298 kilometers of highway were destroyed. The cost of damage was around $2.77 billion in U.S. dollars. Although the eruption caused a lot of damage, the logging companies, took the forest wood that was blown by the explosion and ash. All the wood, made into lumber, could have made 85,000, three bedroom homes. Though that is a lot of forest destroyed. So about 18 million trees over 45,500 acres were planted by hand. And now Mount St. Helens is still beautiful! :)
