Washington DLC: Mount St. Helens in ATS
On this day back in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted in the largest Volcanic event in U.S. history. The devastating effects of this disaster resulted in the loss of over 150 square miles of forest, homes, railways, and roads.
Located 96 miles south of Seattle, it has since become a National Park and more importantly a world-famous natural laboratory for the study of volcanoes and how nature responds to a catastrophe. Standing at 8,365ft tall after the eruption, the mountain is still a very impressive sight.
Just as magnificent as the view was how our map designer team was able to re-create this landmark. The area was designed in fantastic detail using satellite imagery and land-scans.
In our upcoming Washington State expansion, drivers will be able to drive down to a beautiful viewing spot of Mount St Helens with surrounding forests starting to grow again. This combined with locally adjusted draw distance makes for an impressive sight. It will be hard for you to believe you are only a short journey away from the city.
