The blast as seen from Anderson, California, 50 miles away.

[Bottom Left]
The eruption came on gradually at first, getting larger and larger until finally it broke out into a roar like thunder.... [T]he smoke cloud ran down the mountain side, melting the snow very fast, and the water could be seen running a rush twenty feet wide.
