When disturbances are frequent and small 1 point or so monitoring increase when shallow stuff increases to 2-3 points paranoia sets in. Further in my humble opinion no growth in the dome leads more to explosive reaction as opposed to venting. These are just my interpretations.

Watch it


SEATTLE - A strengthening series of earthquakes at Mount St. Helen's prompted seismologists Sunday to warn that the once-devastating volcano may see a small explosion soon.

The U.S. Geological Survey (news - web sites) issued a notice of volcanic unrest in response to the swarm of hundreds of earthquakes that began Thursday.

"The key issue is a small explosion without warning. That would be the major event that we're worried about right now," said Willie Scott, a geologist with the USGS (news - web sites) office in Vancouver.

The quakes were tiny at first, but on Saturday and Sunday there were more than 10 temblors of magnitude 2.0 to 2.8, the most in a 24-hour period since the last dome-building eruption in October 1986, Scott said
