Mount St. Helens memories

The 30th anniversary of the eruption of Mount St. Helens is coming up May 18. The Herald is looking for recollections and photos of that day and the immediate aftermath.

We’re especially interested in hearing from people who were near the mountain when it blew, but we invite anyone with vivid memories of that Sunday in 1980 to send them in.

Please send your stories and photos to by 5 p.m. Thursday.

And by the way, watch KCTS Channel 9 at 8 tonight to see “Mt. St. Helens Back from the Dead.”
