220 - The Eruption of Mount St. Helens

On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted for the first time in over one hundred years, causing immense destruction. The blast generated about 500 times the force of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima and obliterated the mountain. This episode follows the build up to America's most powerful natural disaster, and the people caught up within it.
