15 quakes rattle Mount Saint Helens

A recent swarm of earthquakes has geologists keeping a close eye on Mount Saint Helens.

The USGS says 15 small quakes, mostly in the magnitude 1 range, shook the mountain over the weekend. A spokesman at the seismology lab at the University Washington, Bill Steele, says the quakes were caused by faults and not volcanic activity.

The most powerful quake measured just 2.2 on the Richter Scale. They were about two miles deep just northwest of the volcano.

Oh my. This can't be good. Can you imagine having to watch, YellowStone, New Madrid and Mount St Helene now?

Has it been acting up since 1980? I haven't heard anything about Mount St Helene in 30 years!

I really REALLY don't mean to be a fear-monger. Honestly. I just don't have a good feeling about this year.

I feel spiritually, many will wake up this year but I think planet Earth is about to say 'enough is enough' and will start displaying her disappointment, rightly so!

I think there was a lot of activity there just about a year and a half ago, but it quickly died out. I could be confusing it with Yellowstone though.

The worst and/or largest snowstorm in our history, all-time record low temperatures forecast for Texas, early sunrises in the North, Astrology signs changing, EQ and Volcanic activity ramping up in all kinds of ways. Rebellions in the Middle East and a "war on cops" brewing in the U.S.

Seems like things are just going to continue to get more and more interesting for 2011!

with this winter blizzard on the way, an eruption of sizable magnitude would be the worst thing that could happen. a cloud of ash to block out the sunlight and keep us in blizzard conditions even longer. could be the perfect storm.

I see that the article made sure to say that these quakes were made by faults and no volcano activity, but wouldn't you think that fault quakes would affect the magma chamber under the mountain? Possibly allowing the magma to move to new locations or create more pressure?

I'm not a vulcanologist, so hopefully someone more knowledgeable here can give us some insight.

A series of small earthquakes near Mount St. Helens has drawn attention to the sleeping giant once again. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network has recorded a total of 14 quakes since Thursday. Five of them struck that day, but none was stronger than a magnitude 1.8 quake. Eight more quakes hit Saturday, including a magnitude 2.6. Most of the quakes happened about six miles north of the crater. The latest, a magnitude 2.2, happened at about 12:40 a.m. Sunday. A report from the Cascades Volcano Observatory on Friday said the volcano was at a normal level of seismicity. Scientists said that even though Mount St. Helens sits on an area of tectonic weakness, they're not too alarmed about the recent swarm of earthquakes because this type of activity can be quite common for an active volcano.

I thought the volcano has been active since about 2004 and that sub 2 earthquakes are a common event at this point?

Not to mention, the hot ash melting all the snow east of the eruption... Can you say "Floods of biblical proportions!"

"Interesting"?
Well that's a nice safe word!


My thing is, I don't know if I am looking for oddities or they are just happening and I am finding them (without looking)
But either way, I can't help to 'feel' there's a very common denominator with ALL of this only, I don't know what it is.
The Sun? Earth? Our positioning of lining up with the center of the galaxy?

All these events (well, pretty much all my threads) are connected. That much I truly believe.

Well, I don't think there are that many, at least, not according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network:

Second to last column is magnitude, the one before that is depth, BTW.

Looking at the seismic traces, there really isn't very much there:
www.pnsn.org...

Maybe there will be some more activity, but if it does it will likely take it's time, St Helens seems to like making big, obvious bulges before doing anything.

I could say that, but it would be absurd. Biblical? Really? A slight rise in the level of the Toutle River, maybe. No lives will be lost, no houses swept away.

Volcanoes and earthquakes are caused by the same thing (an inner shifting) only one erupts while the other moves plates.
I don't think a volcano erupts without the plates moving, right?
I noticed that it was only 2 miles deep too. What are the implications of that???

Right now, I don't think Mother Earth is very pleased with us (with the malevolent PTB's that is). I know that sounds all new-agish but, I really feel she's going to react real soon.

This world can NOT continue the way it is. Too many people are running and ruining this world while a good portion don't even care/or know. It's too unbalanced.

And there are those of us, like me and some of you. Who know yet can't do a thing about it (chemtrails for example). We can't close our eyes and we can't scream thinking that's a solution.
So in a way, Earth may be about to speak on behalf of many of us.

well, Your in Florida ,, i would not be so worried..

but looking out my front window, i see Volcano Rainier !!!

it's not that far away ,, as-the-magma-flies ...

but thanks for the Heads up.....

Here in New zealand in the last day or so we have had alot of earthquakes in the north island. There is alot of volcanos in the north island. One is a sleeping super volcano. Taupo....www.geonet.org.nz...

I saw the quakes registered yesterday and thought WOW now Mt. St. Helen's. I sorta remember the last time she erupted, actually I have a book that shows pics of the eruption. I did read somewhere (forgot where) that the chamber should not be full yet, I can't verify that but will try to find a source for it. I still wonder why all the rattles are going on? We have a lot to keep track of this year and its only the end of Jan.

Are you kidding or just ignorant of the facts? Believe this ... If everything east of Mt st Hellens melted at once, it would be 1000 times worse than a rise in rivers.. please investigate before spouting off ignorance.

If the ground frost ALONE melted at once it would be bad.. Not to mention the snow and ice.. Think about it or look into it before commenting.

I just counted over 21 small earthquakes reported today in Alaska. That is not normal. Or at least, reported on this site which, I watch everyday (there may lie some of my problem
). But I never saw so many in one day.
I wonder if that's a precursor or an indication that the plates over in the Pacific are very unstable right now.

Geeze! This is an Volcano thread. What's there to argue over?

Who CARES what you think might happen. We're not writing a Hollywood script!!!!!!!

For all we know, maybe all the volcanoes will erupt, earthquakes set off and Betelgeuse goes supernova simultaneously !

So why are some of you bickering about what you THINK may happen then....arguing about it?
Isn't there one single thread/topic that will not prompt arguments?

And THIS is why Mother Earth is pissed off too. No one seems to get along anymore. There's too much hostility.
