Rick Seifert visited and reported on the area surrounding Mount St. Helens in the ominous days just before its eruption killed dozens of people and devastated hundreds of miles of Washington State. Seifert’s haunting portrait of a small mountain community on the verge of disaster contributed to the Longview (Washington) Daily News winning a Pulitzer Prize for Local Reporting.
