Mount St Helens update

There was a minor outburst of activity this morning at 01:08, which most likely resulted from a small rockfall from the lavadome. Otherwise the mountain seems to have returned to the levels of activity occurring before Tuesdays eruption...

The USGS are reporting that the source of Tuesday's blast was on the north-northwest side of the new dome and that gas measurements do not indicate the presence of any new gas-rich magma resulting from the eruption.
