Thank you! I find it curious how some of them show the event, while others don't. Maybe the type of station? If it is a bore-hole or not? It just seems more and more like it was possibly a regional event that was picked up the strongest at Glacier.

I think now we just need to monitor these stations, see what happens with the micro quakes and the deep tremors. Ofcourse, I am sure there are multiple scientists doing the same things....but I'm a control freak, so I just like to know what's going on!

Yes, it is a borehole. If you run your mouse over the map, you will find it is interactive.

I was stationed at FT. Lewis Washington between 07' and 08', during in-processing they told us we were surrounded by volcano's that were due to go anytime. They also said when they start to go you will not have much time left after that to kiss your loved one's and your ass good-bye! I was hoping to be told were the secret bunker was but when your base is in the path of molten hot lava, well game over. It would be best for you to have a good exit plan, just in case.


Oh geez, somebody has fun spooking the new kids. First of all, it's ash not lava. Secondly, you'd have a good hour to get higher ground, you know - like Tacoma. I grant you it would not be pleasant at all and I wouldn't want to live out in Orting, but people in the Dupont/Fort Lewis area would just need to get out of the way.

If the pressure is increasing amid the plates, the pressure on the Yakutat Block is increasing.

I say watch south central Alaska.

I apologize if this has been posted as I haven't read the entire thread.

This is an article in today's paper in Everett, Washington.

Seismic fault beneath us is ‘fully loaded’ after 311 years.

The story of the Jan. 26, 1700, temblor is fascinating. And sobering.

"Actually, it’s been 311 years since the Great Cascadia Earthquake of 1700.

Steele, a University of Washington seismologist and spokesman for the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, said scientists have determined the monster quake occurred Jan. 26, 1700 — 311 years ago tonight.

It happened off the Northwest coast, and created huge tsunamis that devastated shorelines here and in Japan."

I doubt the observed seismic activity is anything out of the ordinary. Volcanoes generate small earth tremors on a fairly continuos basis. As others have noted, there are many types of observations which indicate a possible immenent volcanic eruption. In the case of Mount St. Helens, I recall that a very big lava dome built up for weeks before it finally gave way.

Mount Baker isn't dormant, but the most notable indicator of activity is the occasional release of steam and I think it has been decades since that happened.

The most threatening volcano in the Pacific northwest is Mount Ranier. If it erupts, it is quite possible that several Seattle suburbs will be threatened by pyroclastic flows.

None of these tremors made the local news, this side of the border however there is an earthquake drill happening in Vancouver today.


I live in Surrey too, sorry that is not correct about Baker, almost every year i have noticed steam coming from it.

This is likely an anomoly. Most sites have no indication of harmonic tremors or increased earthquake activity. No need to panic this could have happened for any number of reasons including underground steam or an avalanche. If earthquake activity at the volcano is steady and increases in frequency then it's time to think about a back-up plan. The USGS will not allow a volcano to blow without posting extremely visable warnings ahead of time. No need to
panic

I agree that there is no need to panic, and so far no indication that anything is getting ready to blow. However, after reading the articles about Glacier, I question just how much of a warning we would have. Hopefully, if her time comes she will give us a bunch of little quakes to wake us up. Because there are only THREE seismometers near or on that mountain and NO GPS. This means that if there is ANY uplift or deformation, no one will know about it. It is rated 2/4 on the safety scale for monitoring. Given the FACT that is volcano has produced some of the biggest eruptions ever from the cascades, I find it very alarming that not only have I never heard anything about it, but that it isn't being closely monitored. There isn't even a road to it. It takes three days of rough climbing to summit it. It is like a ghost in the back room that no one pays attention to until it starts showing itself. I don't like that.

Do I think it's about to erupt? Not in the slightest. Do I think there was a measurable event yesterday that registered on MULTIPLE seismographs all over the western half of washing and Oregon that seem strongest Glacier Peak? Most definately YES. Does this warant attention? Heck yes.

Anyone educated on this area knows the subduction zone is one of the most dangerous forces of nature around and just as the above linked article from today is so kind to point out: hasn't released any significant energy for quite some time. This is why when I see these anomalies....I pay attention. I am not freaking out, I am not running around in a panic. I am simply aware and watching, and trying to inform others who most likely knew nothing about this volcano in our backyard too.



As for an update: I have been checking in throughout the day, but I know the thread is getting long and it's difficult to sort things out. So far today, there has been nothing notable at Glacier (Yay!)...the Iris station that we determined to be in the peninsula is still rockin out: HERE


Helens is grumbling a little bit: (as well as multiple other micro quakes in the PNW)

...and I am waiting for the deep tremors map to be updated, which happens at 5:00 PM. Those have been on the increase.

I decided to include the pics I took yesterday of those wierd clouds, since another resident of my county told me she saw the same thing and thought the same thing. Just weird outside yesterday and again today. Strange hue on the horizon, the clouds are in wierd formations all across the sky....just feels heavy. Could just be my imagination though.



Edit to fic pic size

At home now on dreaded dial up - when they update the tremor map today, please post. Also, that cloud formation is way cool - I'm going to try to locate our Ozweatherman and see if he can tell us what formation this is.

I have been coming to this thread 2 or 3 times a day - mostly reading and trying to learn. The pics you posted are amazing - I think the clouds are an indication of something happening just as the rainbow clouds are. Wanted to thank you and everyone that has added to this thread. I have friends in Washington - lived there for a couple of years way back - what beautiful country. Staying tuned for updates!

Thanks Annmarie and Crazydaisy. The pics don't really do them justice.... I know they have a name but darned if I know what it is. I have seen them here once before, about a year ago. Not a common site for around here. They are really neat to see, like you are looking up through the water towards the surface at large waves crashing over your head. Kinda gives you a weird feeling!

I will update with the tremor map when available.

AnnMarie....do you think it at all possible that B943 might be picking up on the deep tremors? Given its location and that it's a bore hole, and the current location and activity of the tremors? I don't know, just thinking out loud. I will try and match up the times later.

I see that Wyoming, Utah and Nevada are all seeing thier fair share of quakes today too. We seem to all go at the same time. Our little ring!

I saw clouds like that similar around Rainier today except they were white, it definitely made Rainier look really bright today. Did anyone else notice the big mushroom shaped cloud hanging out over Rainier today?

Time for a vacation? Seems a lot is going on with the volcanoes up that way lately.

Usually that mushroom cloud that covers Mt. Rainier means it's going to rain the next day. Westcoast what time where those pictures taken and what day? I saw some similiar on Tuesday morning. But had a high thin cloud cover. To me they had the shape of seaguls or birds flying.
EDIT I just looked at the weather forecast. Notice I said "usually"

Thanks Berkleygal! Mine weren't as pronounced as some of those, But I think its the same formation. As I said earier, I can only remember seeing clouds like this once before last year and now I saw them yesterday and today. I try and get more pics if they're here again tomorrow.

As to rainier...I can't see it from my house, so I don't know. Might have been an upwind sweeping snow off the face? Or did it look more like an actuall cloud? Wish I could have seen it. I forget what those are called too...think it starts with a C.

Okay AnnMarie....there were 85 epicenters today, spread up and down the coast again. I went ahead and did a depth/time plot for the last three days, as well as the faults drawn in:





You can clearly see they all fall right smack on top of the fault line.


As to that vacation...well, my 5th wheel is ALWAYS ready to go.
