for the time being, it looks as if she mildly 'burped' and there is no indication at this moment that another eruption will happen soon, but they'll keep monitoring sesmology reports
Meanwhile, in Mt Rainier the sky is hazy looking, but that happens often and may have nothing to do with ash since it seems the winds are blowing southerly not northerly at this time *sigh* makes me feel good, as my daughter is near Mt Rainier today
ALERT some airlines are already cancelling AK AIR has cancelled flights and PDX is now beginning to curtail flights
all the crews that were on the mountain this morning, meanwhile, are OK
as one geologist said...what a hoot!
and as of now, 1:37PM, all seems quiet again, and the scientists are following up on the new data and pictures
update of 3PM? seems as if Helens is snoozing
