40 Years After The Eruption [4K Drone over Mt. St. Helens)


New contributor brotherstouring brings us this fantastic drone video of Mt. St. Helens in the USA's Pacific Northwest, one of the world's most famous volcanoes.  Located in southern Washington, about 80 km (around 50 mi.) northeast of Portland, Oregon, Mt. St. Helens catastrophically erupted on May 18, 1980.  The massive explosion, which triggered a subsequent lateral eruption, was the deadliest volcanic event in US history.  It killed dozens, destroyed hundreds of homes, and reduced the mountain's height by 400 meters (around 1.3k ft.).
