From the March 2005 Idaho Observer:

NW volcanoes waking up?


VANCOUVER, BC—The Endeavor Hot Vents area, active volcanoes under about 6,000 feet of water 200 miles southwest of Vancouver Island, was the epicenter of some 3,800 earthquakes between March 7 and March 9, 2005. The quakes ranged between 4.0 and 5.3 on the Richter scale. Scientists concur the events are the result of the Juan de Fuca and Pacific tectonic plates pulling apart and that a major quake will inevitably rock the entire west coast—someday (soon?).

MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash.—During a 30-minute event beginning at 5:25 p.m., March 8, 2005, Mount St. Helens sent a plume of ash and steam 36,000 feet into the air (pictured at right from the Sugar Bowl camera two minutes into the eruption). The volcano has settled back down and is emitting steam and gases at this time. Mounts Rainier, Baker, Hood, Jefferson and Adams are reportedly behaving normally.
