Heads Up!

Happy Easter everyone - but on an entirely different subject, Mount St. Helens may be ramping up for some more action.

The link above is to one of the instrument readouts from the Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network. They've got a grundle of seismographs placed on Mt. Saint Helens and other PNW volcanoes. We hit them as part of our daily news safari. This is their homepage - note the link to the MSH webcam in the left margin.

We'll be watching today - the forecast is calling for clearing weather. The recent snow and rainfall has increased the likelihood of debris flows, but also makes steam explosions a possibility as the moisture flows down through the new layers of ash and rock in the crater.
