Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Disasters & Events that Shaped America - Mount St. Helen's Eruption. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980. The volcano, located in southwestern Washington, used to be a beautiful symmetrical cone about 9,600 feet above sea level. The eruption, which removed the upper 1,300 feet of the summit, left a horseshoe-shaped crater and a barren wasteland.

In terms of economic impact, the Mount St. Helens eruption was the most destructive in U.S. history. 57 people are known to have died. More than 200 homes were destroyed. More than 185 miles of roads and 15 miles of railways were damaged.

Ash clogged sewage systems, damaged cars and buildings, and temporarily shut down air traffic over the Northwest. The International Trade Commission estimated damages to timber, civil works and agriculture to be $1.1 billion.

Today the land is healing, having recovered its natural beauty, but the landscape has been permanently altered.
