I was looking at www.pnsn.org... for earthquakes and I notice earthquakes on Mt Hood and so far every they have had at least 1 earthquake, normally on average they have none, is Mt Hood going to erupt. Practically all the glacier are gone.

Just a heads-up, your link doesn't work.

I remember visiting Mt Hood as a boy. Who knows, technically could erupt at any time. It hasn't been active for at least 2 centuries though.

No it's not. It's summer time, and those "earthquakes", almost all of which are less than 1.0, are just related to the spring thaw - water draining down into the ground, the surface weight transferring down will cause small shifts in the sub surface. Most of those quakes are about 5000 feet below the surface, which is around sea level considering much of that area is around 3500 to 6000 feet above sea level.

Nothing to worry about. It's a dormant volcano, not extinct though.

There is proof now that a so called dormant volcano can re-awake very quickly perhaps a few months time.

"What were once called “dormant” volcanoes is not being restated as there being no such thing as a dormant volcano."
www.itsnature.org...

"Until now it was thought that once a volcano's magma chamber had cooled down it remained dormant for centuries before it could be remobilized by fresh magma. "

Small earthquakes near Mt. Hood are not unusual. This is a picture of the historical activity.



Found at this link PNSN
