Mount St Helens remains relatively quiet

Over the last week bad weather has obscured the view of the crater for most nights. The weather improved last night and provided our first views of the night time activity of the growing lavadome for several days. Despite several small tremors being recorded overnight, there were no bright outbursts in activity and the glow from the crater was very faint.

The USGS/CVO is reporting that, moderate sized earthquakes continue to punctuate the background level of small drumbeat earthquakes several times per day, but this is par for the course at present. There has been no significant change in the level of activity at the mountain over the past few days.
