Mt. Hood-Hood River County Oregon
|Mount Hood’s last major eruption occurred in the 1790’s not long before Lewis and Clark’s expedition to the Pacific Northwest. In the mid-1800’s, local residents reported minor explosive activity, but since that time the volcano has been quiet. Someday, however, Mount Hood will erupt again.|
When the mountain erupts again City of Portland may be affected by volcanic dust and ash similar to the 1980 eruption of Mt. Saint Helens.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great day.
