More Volcano

Latest from the Seattle Times:

Mount St. Helens volcano warning level raised

"Federal scientists raised the volcano warning at Mount St. Helens to the equivalent of an orange alert this morning, as earthquake intensity increased and preliminary measurements showed magma may be moving into the crater.

Volcanic explosions could occur at any time, and an eruption that spews rock and ash up to three miles from the crater is possible, said Cynthia Gardner, of the U.S. Geological Survey's Cascades Volcano Observatory. A larger eruption is also possible, but not likely, scientists said."

The fog has cleared so you can see things clearly now on the webcam.
