In this week's episode, Abby is back to share another white-knuckle natural disaster tale and this time the crew visits the 1980 volcanic eruption of Mount St Helens.
Located in Washington state in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, Mount Saint Helens is a gorgeous destination for hikers and families looking to enjoy nature and admire the snowcapped mountain. But beneath its peaceful exterior lies a sleeping giant who would reawaken in the spring of 1980 to culminate in the most destructive and costly volcanic eruption in the history of the United States.
Tune in to learn the devastating details of the eruption as well as eyewitness accounts from the people who survived the event.
