Recently, magma activity at St. Helens has increased, meaning that there is some rise in the magma dome.

Those living nearby may wish to pay attention to the new activity.

I used to follow MSH on a daily basis.

Hey Astro do you live nearby Mt St Helens? In Texas we generally don't worry about that sort of calamity although the discovery channel had a show on Yellowstone park and the super volcano beneath it and how if it erupted it would blanket Texas with a lot of fallout.

Mount St. Helens

When I was young I spent some time at the Boy Scout camp at Spirit Lake at the foot of St. Helens. There were also a Girl Scout and 4H camp there. Now the lake itself no longer exists- very sad.

I followed St. Helens for many years, but got busy with other events. I'm planning to visit, so I'm paying attention to the magma chamber.

I live about 100mi south of St. Helens, I remember hearing/feeling the eruption in 1980 but have never seen it other then from a distance.
