I have 2 questions! I'm a Pacific Northwesterner with an Environmental History degree so super psyched about this ama, thanks for doing this.

  1. How prepared does the PNW seem (both cities like Seattle and Portland and rural areas) for another major eruption?
  2. Did any unexpected environmental history revelations come out of the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption?

Oh neat, thanks for answering! Definitely going down a research rabbit hole today :)

That is really fascinating and all good news, haha. Never fails to amaze me that we live in a part of the country where this type of community preparedness is necessary. The work you guys do in our local communities is invaluable!
