May is Volcano Awareness Month

May 18 is the anniversary of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. Volcanoes do not erupt often but when they do, they can be deadly. Talk with your local emergency management agency to learn about evacuation and shelter plans, and for ways to protect yourself and your home from ash.
