I am emailing you to tell you how I felt on the day of my eruption, May 18, 1980. It was a big eruption where just about half of me fell to the ground. I caused lots of destruction around me and I killed 57 people. My gasses where expanding so they created pressure. What caused me to erupt was that there was pressure that was underground that caused the magma to go up and it melted the rock on the volcano.Then when I got wekend I started to erupt.
