Westcoast just a fyi, drudgereport.com picked this up as well. here is the link they give
Link and just how far are you from Mt. St. Helen?
Emergency dispatchers from Clark, Cowlitz and Skamania counties all got calls reporting the quake, but no reports of any damage
Several residents of the area told KGW they felt the quake, including as a far south as the Sunnyside area of Clackamas
Debby Southworth told KGW that "I just felt a shift and my entire house shook. The windchimes on my front porch chimed too
A spokesman at the seismology lab at the University Washington, Bill Steele, said the quakes were caused by faults and not volcanic activity.
He added that they were about two miles deep, just northwest of the volcano and no one had reported that they felt the earthquakes.

Yes, a 4.3 is significant in that area: they're far from common! And as you say, it doesn't have to mean anything major is imminent but all the same it's good to have it logged.
Most interesting that your dog was showing her signs of nervousness yesterday (and also good that you logged that in the other thread at the time). It helps to lend credence to the hypothesis that some animals are very sensitive to such things.
Okay I'm off to dinner (it's nearly 9 pm here). Be back later...
EDIT: won't surprise me if they downgrade that 2.3 a point or two after seismologists review it.edit on 14/2/11 by JustMike because: I added an edit!
CASCADES VOLCANO OBSERVATORY WEEKLY UPDATE
Recent Observations: Seismometers recorded a 2-minute-long swarm of small (M < 0), shallow earthquakes at Mount Rainier on Thursday February 10, beginning at 5:52 am. At Mount Hood, seismometers recorded a small swarm of earthquakes on Friday, February 11, beginning at 5:01 am. Preliminary magnitude of the largest earthquake at Mount Hood was M 1.7, and the earthquakes were located 4 miles east of Government Camp at depths of 3-5 miles in an area that commonly experiences earthquakes. Elsewhere along the Cascade Range, monitoring systems show that activity at volcanoes during the past week was at background levels.

Hey no biggie man... You did awesome considering that you are in Romania. There are kids in the US that can't even identitfy California on a map, so I would say you are well ahead of the curve on that subject.
I apoligize if in any way I came off as rude, that was not my intentions at all. And please don't be bashful about posting just because of a previous error. We are all here to learn from each other.
