: St. Hellens Eruption

Good evening,
At 5:28 this evening Mt St Hellens had a significant eruption to 36,000 ft. The ash plume seems to be moving towards Packwood / Yakama Counties, or to the N/NE at about 25 mph but no problems as of yet. A 2.0 quake was recorded just before the plume rose.
The mountain is being closely watched for any more activity

Its` Ok she was just being a little ash hole, but she is resting well now. Just a little tummy ache and some gas she had to get rid of.

I cant see the mountian from the house, their are some trees in the way. But one thing I noticed is that their has been no steam plume the last couple of days.

Sure wish she would scare some of the netters off the Columbia so we could get some fish up here in this big river.
