What was the cost for the damage after mount Lamington in 1951?
After the eruption it cost a estimate of $1.5 million to repair all damage and restore Popondetta to its original state.

Well basically, the volcano is on a plate margin. The pacific plate and Indo-Australian plate collide with each other and one plate is pushed under another. Because of t…he heat underground, the rock melts and becomes magma. When there is too much magma, it pushes it's way up through the cracks and finally it erupts. The cracks in the rock, (overground) come from when the plates are pushing against each other.
Volcanic eruptions don't go by the Richter Scale.. perhaps you are thinking of the VEI (Volcanic Explosivity Index) Scale? If so, the VEI of Mt. Lamington was a level 5.
Much costs or maybe not, whose to know
44 million dollars.

On January 15, 1951, some residents noticed fresh landslides on the steep inner faces of the semi-circle of peaks. In the afternoon, a thin column of smoke was seen rising fro…m base of the peaks. These phenomena increased a bit the next day. In the afternoon, Higaturu was shaken by a mild earthquake, the first of many that day. On January 17, the vapor plume was more vigorous and carried a little ash. Earthquakes occurred about every 7 minutes.Three days of tremor preceded the eruption starting 18 January 1951. The actual The paroxysm (explosion) at Lamington occurred at 10:40 am on the 21st January 1951. On the 22nd & 23rd Reports were still coming in. About one day later, G.A.M. Taylor, an Australian volcanologist, arrived on the scene. by then actual eruptions were over.
