Recent Mount Rainier Earthquakes...

Last year there were 4 seismic events for the entire 12 months.

This year in just 8 months we have had 16 seismic events. 7 events just in the last 20 days.

I just read that the early dectection system which gives a 40 minute warning has been reajusted to just 5 minutes.

How do you evacuate seatle in just 5 minutes?

LOL!

When MT Rainier blows, Seattle is toast. Mt Rainer has been getting slightly more active in the past few years. It blows, and it will trigger tsunamis, earthquaes, and the columbia river will flood, screwing up Portland really basd.

But really, guys, it blows, it blows. I sit now and look at it out mu back window, it looms. Even in the summer, it is wonderous to watch wih pinks and reds in the sunset. So, i can only hope that beautiful image will be my last when it finally decides to blow and vaporize me.

Besides, you cant evacuate seatle in 5 months, let alone five minutes: everyone in this damn town is so stoned they probably wouldnt even realize it blew!

I have long been thinking that Mt. Ranier is the next major eruption risk, although compared to Yellowstone its rather small. (No offense Fury...)

Keep in mind, Mt. St. Helens wasnt that damaging because its slope failed on the side facing away from populated areas... call it luck.

Basically, what led to Mt. St. Helens eruption was that one side proceeded to "inflate" laterally (parrellel to the ground), until it was distended to the point that it could no longer support its own weight, at which point it collapsed vertically, which released the contained the magmatic pressure.

The eruption was equivalent to 20-25 megaton nuclear blast.

www.olywa.net...

Assuming an eruption of the same magnitude, oriented due north (towards Tacoma and Seattle) Tacoma would likely suffer the most severe damage, however due to the distance it would likely recieve some pyroclastic flow but not much of the blast wave. Seattle would likely be too far away to be severly damaged, although it would likely recieve very significant ashfall.

Not to diminish the explosive potential during an eruption: most likely, any people or lifeforms between Mt. Rainier and Tacoma not protected in a substantial bunker would likely be killed outright by the pryoclastic flow.

Skadi,

If you live that close to Mt. Rainier, might not be a bad time to take another trip to the UK...

Seriously dude, if you are that close, I would suggest a trip into Seattle proper, or further if you can make it.

Same goes for your Skadi.

I have been through hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, riots, and even a mag 2.7 quake... but I dont want to be around a pyroclastic eruption that could have upwards of 20 megatons yield...

Dont know you that well Skadi (or Fury), but dont want to see you guys go in a permanent way yet!
