How much ash covered Harry Trumans house in the mount st helens eruption?
Answer In 1980 a series of Large Earthquakes awakened the previous sleeping volcano, Mt. St Helens. A Pyroclastic eruption was caused when a huge explosion blasted out the side of the Volcano, which also caused a huge Landslide. 57 people died including local man Harry Truman who refused to leave his home at Spirit Lake, and Daniel Johnston a local Volcanologist was killed in the Ash cloud. It was one of America's biggest Earthquakes!
Harry Randall Truman (not to be confused Harry S. Truman) was an elderly man who lived in a lodge near the foot of Mount St. Helens. He became something of a celebrity when he refused to leave despite warnings from scientists. Truman died along with 56 other people when Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980.
