Mt. St. Helens Eruption!
This is an image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the
Johnston Ridge Observatory (updated approximately every five minutes). The
Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500
feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately
south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley. (See also:

Just a few years ago Mount Pinatubo in The Philippines went boom and lowered the global temperature by 0.5 degrees Celsius a year after its eruption. How many more need to go before we have the equivalent of a nuclear winter (volcanic winter)? Mt. St. Helens is one of the volcanoes, along with Mt. Pinatubo and Mt. Fiji in the Ring of Fire.
