Mount St Helens, how is she at the moment? Am I right in believing its part of a few volcanoes there? Ring of fire too I think. Anyone? Could be the
location of the next biggy volcanic also?
Sorry off topic but the chia and pakistan floods? Seems a lot of 'rainwater' not melt water? From a certain mountain range perhaps? Warming up?
Mount Saint Helens has been the most active earthquake-wise since the whole deep tremors began. (I think I talked about it on my washington link
yesterday.) Here is her EQ list:

Now she is typically the most active, but that is still a bit above normal for her. Helen's errupting again is ofcourse ALWAYS a concern, although I
must say, that I am WAY more concerned about Rainier and Baker. They are both overdue (espeicially Rainier) and the LAHARS alone would wipe out
potentially millions. They are both at about normal right now though....so that is VERY good.
Hood has been real active this year, I think it is connected with all of this. Hood is Just south of the ORegon border.
Edit to answer your other questions: Yes, they are all part of the same volcanic range, and considered part of the 'ring of fire'. If you look at
a world map, it is obvious!! HERE
