Mount St. Helens Update
| September 29, 2004 5:30 P.M., PDT |
| |
| |
| Increased seismicity overnight prompted raising the alert level to |
| Volcano Advisory (Alert Level 2) at 10:40 A.M., PDT, this morning. |
| Throughout the day the seismic energy level has remained at an |
| elevated with a rate of 3-4 events per minute including an increase in |
| the number of events between Magnitude 2 and 3. All earthquake |
| locations are still shallow and in or below the lava dome. In |
| addition, initial data from the GPS instrument on the lava dome that |
| was repaired Monday morning suggest that the site moved a few inches |
| northward Monday and Tuesday, but has since been stable. Such movement |
| is not surprising in light of the high seismicity levels. A USGS field |
| crew continued their deployment of GPS equipment today in order to |
| monitor any ground movement on the lava dome, crater floor, or lower |
| slopes of the volcano. Another gas flight this morning produced a |
| result of no significant volcanic gas detected, as was the case on |
| Monday. Two press conferences were held at CVO to update the media. |
| Tomorrow's field work includes continued GPS deployments. |
| |
| |
| The current hazard outlook is unchanged from that outlined in this |
| morning's Volcano Advisory. Updated wind forecasts from the National |
| Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration coupled with an eruption |
| model indicate that the wind direction will shift from northwesterly |
| to northeasterly tonight. Therefore any ash clouds produced tonight |
| will drift southwestward. |
| |
| |
| Confusion at this morning's press briefing at CVO regarding Alert |
| Levels resulted in numerous calls to emergency management agencies |
| from the public about which is the correct level. We are at Alert |
| Level Two?Volcano Advisory. Explanation of the alert-level scheme can |
| be found on the "News and Current Events" web site below. |

Currently the MSH state is in low level steam eruptions according to the evening news. I will be checking this often!

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooh I misssd that completely. I guess I was distracted by the resident archaeology who is currently editing two journals and readying them for the publishers. I get to read the articles first. How good is that?!
