Looks Like 2 Government Agencies Cite Mount St. Helens Eruption To Warn Against Reopening

Published

It sure looks like two government agencies just used the upcoming 40th anniversary of the eruption of the Mount St. Helens volcano in Washington state to warn against a hasty reopening of the economy during the coronavirus pandemic.

The volcano erupted five days later, killing 57 people and causing more than $1 billion in damage.

The agencies’ posts did not specifically mention the coronavirus pandemic that has now killed more than 85,000 people in the U.S.

People on Twitter, however, suggested they were subtweeting public figures ― such as President Donald Trump, his Republican allies and personalities on Fox News ― who are pushing for the resumption of business against the advice of public health experts. 

“Listen to scientists,” several tweeters responded.
