this is the live web-cam site for Mt St Helens
http://www.fs.fed.us/gpnf/volcanocams/msh/


LOL, at 6:39AM there was a picture, but right now, nothing, though there is a huge fog/cloud bank that was visible in the earlier images..maybe it moved and now blankets the mountain from camera view
it supposedly auto updates every 5 min
Hope you can see it!

Hey Kacy~
THANKS ... and when Mount St. Helens erupted on May 18, 1980, this link shows just one of the many photos of the event~

WOW !!!

Interestingly enough, I have a bracelet and earrings made from the ash of the 1980 eruption ... just GORGEOUS deep teal/jade-ish looking stones made from re-heating the ash~

Thanks for keeping us on top (literally) of things, gal~

Marge, wow, is right! I was able to get another photo from webcam that was taken AM Sept 28, from a link on the webcam page.
The mountain is in the clouds today, as is most of the Pacific NW this morning.

Any webcam shots from your area? Hmm?

Midnitesun:  Thank for this link.  I will check it out. I have been watching the news clips about it.  My daughter and family lived here in Coeur d'Alene, on May 18, 1980
and lived through the heavy ash fall-out. They were marooned in their house for three days.  Even after coming out, they couldn't drive their cars without putting panty hose, or something of that nature over the
intake on the engine. I came up shortly afterwards from Nevada and drove through heavy ash, for many miles after crossing into Oregon.  The mountain was threatening
again, all the two days I traveled and I was afraid I would get stranded somewhere.
Now we live in Coeur d'Alene and are wondering what is going to happen.

Hugs to you, Betty. I doubt any future St Helen's events will compare to the original blowout. But since the magma in the dome appears to be on the move again, I think everyone should err on the side of caution.

There's a reason Nature is called a Mother.

ROTFL. Yep.
oops!  as of now, it appears as if we are now at level 2 alert for this volcano, and level 3 means...eruption
and, depending upon the prevailing winds, I just might be in the ashfall zone...
all of a sudden I'm re-considering a few things
the scariest for me? my daughter and the horse trainers are leaving Thurs to go to Auburn WA for the regional Dressage finals...gulp

so I'm asking Helen to chill....flight patterns in and out of the NW will be changed if she blows again

and on the ground...well, all you hurricane people know the edginess I'm feeling about now

Always fascinating, my mom caught some great footage of Etna from her visit to Sicily a few years ago. Speaking of which, looks like Etna is a little testy lately
