    Mt. St. Helens Erupting!

    Just heard she's erupting again! I found a link to the USGS website with a webcam, and it just looks like a low dirty cloud.

    Anyone else have any information?

    I had a .gov site that said the there was increased activity there and then the site went "Can't be displayed" ??? before I could get the link for you. I did a search on "news Mt. St. Helens" to find it.

    As far as I know, this is just what they were expecting since the flurry of tremmors they picked up last week.... pretty much letting out some steam and ash, but no thrown rocks or magma. But even the scientists in charge admit that they can't really predict what mother nature is going to do.

    Pretty awesome power!!

    ^^^ that is still a wimpy eruption compared to any thing mother nature can throw our way. The last time St. Helens erupted, our town, about oh, say 700 miles away still got covered in ash. About 1.567734236576 inches to be exact.

    Yeah, I was living in Eugene back then, and there was pretty much a layer of ash over everything there.
    Pretty impressive, though, when ash and steam shot 1 mile into the air is considered wimpy.

    What's with these volcanoes going off lately? There's the one in Italy, the one here, and another one in Hawaii I've been hearing about. Or are these regular occurrances and we just don't hear about them?

    I'd be interested in seeing a volcano erupt, but at the same time, I've been to Pompei, so that would stop me from seeking out an active one.

    There's one in the canary islands that has several hundred billion tons of rock (basically the entire side of the volcano) hanging off a ledge and it's rumored that if it erupts and the slab slides into the ocean, will cause a 40-50 foot wave to wipe out the eastern coast of america.

    well, volcanoes are always erupting in hawaii. I was there during summer break and if your willing to hike a little you can see the lava oozing into the ocean.

    Yeah but volcanos are like taking a poop. It's usually the violent explosive ones that are the scariest. The runny oozing ones just draw stares from coworkers.

    I heard more like several waves over 300 feet high with a tidal surge along with it. That wave will hit the foothills of the appalachians before it subsides and pulls everything back into the ocean with it. I think it would sweep right over the top of florida straight for gulf coast of Texas and Mexico.

    This is the Bad boy I been waitin' fer. I saw a steam jet near the northwest summit a few years back right about sunrise.



    Background Seismicity at Mt. Rainier:
    In an average month, 1-5 well-located, high-frequency earthquakes are recorded near the summit of Mt. Rainier. In addition, small swarms of 5-10 earthquakes over a 2-3-day time period sometimes occur. All of these earthquakes are shallow, with most locating near sea level (~4 km below the summit), and are interpreted by Moran (1997) to be occurring in response to stresses associated with the circulation of hot fluids beneath Mount Rainier. These fluids are thought to be the source for the hot springs and steam vents found at the summit and at various points within Mount Rainier National Park (e.g. Frank, 1995).

    I'm still waiting for it to really something cool, then I'll have an excuse to drive out to Randle and snap some pictures.

    I could have swore I posted an update here yesterday.:confused:
    anyway here it is again
    U.S. Geological Survey, Vancouver, Washington
    University of Washington, Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network, Seattle, Washington

    Mount St. Helens Notice of Volcano Alert, October 2, 2004

    A notice of Volcano Alert (Alert Level 3) was issued today at 2:00 p.m. PDT

    Immediately after the small steam emission at 12:15, seismic activity changed from principally rock breakage events to continuous low-frequency tremor, which is indicative of magma movement. We are increasing the alert level to Volcano Alert the highest alert level indicating that an eruption could be imminent.

    The cause and outcome of the accelerating unrest is uncertain. Explosions from the vent could occur suddenly and without further warning. During such explosions the dome and crater floor are at greatest risk from ballistic projectiles, but the rim of the crater and flanks of the volcano could also be at risk. Explosions would also be expected to produce ash clouds that rise several to tens of thousands of feet above the crater rim and drift downwind. Currently wind forecasts from the National Weather Service, combined with eruption models, show that ash clouds will move to the northwest. If ash emissions are large, drifting ash could affect downwind communities. Minor melting of the glacier could trigger debris flows from the crater that are large enough to reach the Pumice Plain. There is very low probability that downstream communities would be impacted by these hydrologic events. .

    We continue to monitor the situation very closely and will issue additional updates as warranted, whether activity escalates or returns to background levels
    and a further update

    Mount St. Helens Update, October 2, 2004, 7:00 P.M.


    Current status is Volcano Alert (Alert Level 3); aviation color code RED


    At 2 pm today, we increased the alert level to Volcano Alert due to a change in the character of seismic signals (50-minute-long tremor) that occurred immediately after the small steam emission at 12:15. Since the tremor stopped, seismic character has changed back to the type of earthquakes we have detected since the beginning of the volcanic unrest. Earthquakes are occurring at a rate of 1-2 per minute with maximum earthquake magnitues of about M3. All earthquake locations remain shallow.

    Today field crews took additional thermal images of the dome and crater. Deformation crews were in the field retrieving data from GPS instruments. Results are not yet available from today's late gas flight .

    Currently wind forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), combined with eruption models, show winds this evening will be from the east and southeast and any ash clouds will drift to the west and northwest.

    We continue to monitor the situation very closely and will issue additional updates as warranted.

    Press conferences will be held tomorrow at the Supervisor's Office of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. The morning press conference is at 9:30 am.

    We had quite a bit of ash here from the 1980 event. I still am of the opinion that the 1980 event changed our weather pattern here in central Montana. We just started getting more normal winter weather patterns last year.

    We were worried that the giant fly was going to devour the mountain

    Don't know where it went but we are hoping it flew back to Japan, let Godzilla deal with the damn thing
