Mount St Helens eruption - one year anniversary

It was one year ago today that Mount St Helens rumbled back to life and began a new eruptive phase. The USGS/CVO will be holding a press conference this morning to review the past years activity.

This morning the Volcanocam shows the crater to be clear with a small steam plume rising gently from the crater. Last night, the view was also clear and there were a few small outbursts of activity, although nothing particularly spectacular to celebrate today's anniversary.

Do you know if there is a transcript of that news conference available on the internet? I read the bullets and would like to see what questions and answers there might have been.

Hi Cathy, I haven't seen an actual transcript of the press briefing, but there are quite a few press stories that were published after the event.
