Well. Let's ask Mount St. Helens: "noticed landsliding of rock and ice debris inward into the crater ... the south-facing wall of the north side of the
main crater was especially active. Within a matter of seconds, perhaps 15 seconds, the whole north side of the
summit crater began to move instantaneously.... The nature of movement was eerie.... The entire mass began
to ripple and churn up, without moving laterally. Then the entire north side of the summit began sliding to the north
along a deep-seated slide plane. I [Keith Stoffel] was amazed and excited with the realization that we were watching
this landslide of unbelievable proportions.... We took pictures of this slide sequence occurring, but before we
could snap off more than a few pictures, a huge explosion blasted out of the detachment plane. We neither felt nor
heard a thing, even though we were just east of the summit at this time."
