The vehicles were parked at the edge of the area in which trees were blown down by the lateral blast. Two men, one of the owner of these vehicles, were camped at the lake nearby and were asphyxiated by the hot volcanic ash, which covered this spot to an average depth of about 6 inches [Al Handy and Clyde Croft].
