You know, I really have to wonder what is going to happen. Rainer did this same thing before the big earthquake on Dec. 26th. As well as before the 8 pointers after. It lasted about a month if I remember correctly.

Hi Jennifer !
Thank you for your e-mail and question regarding Mt. Rainier.
First, most of us in the volcano business consider Mt. Rainier to be the single most dangerous volcano in the United States today. The recent earthquake activity is common place with Mt. Rainier, i.e., coming and going in sort of cycles as it did last year and again this year. Of course the Cascades Volcano Observatory (CVO) and certainly we here at SWVRC pay close attention to the seismic activity of this volcano. Currently, Eruption Pro 10.6 has forecasted Mt. Rainier with a 12.94% probability of eruption for year 2005 with current data loaded. Of course this probability calculation can increase (or decrease) with additional data on seismic, deformation, thermal, etc.
Again, many thanks for you e-mail and question. And I guarantee you we will be watching this mountain closely !

Hello, I was wondering what you think of Mt. Rainier right now. There are quite a few of us watching the seismographs via the usgs website. We have noticed that since last year, Mt. Rainier has acted up before all of the 7+ quakes. He acted up again before this last quake, quiet down, and now he is acting up again. Several of us are curious/concerned. When Mt. St. Helens started up last year, they explained that what looked like a heart beat on the seismographs was magma. Rainier has developed that "heart beat". So, what do you think Rainier is doing?
Thanks for your time,
