"Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations…It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts." -- Secretary of Defense William Cohen

Was Mount St. Helens WOKEN up?

Is there a reasonable explanation for the odd signals on the seismo recordings? Scroll down to the "oooeeeeooo"

Any of you been following the rumblings and alerts at Mount St. Helens?

Here's some links:

News and Advisories: http://www.pnsn.org/NEWS/PRESS_RELEASES/MSH_09_2004.html

seizmo recordings from the dome: http://www.pnsn.org/WEBICORDER/GREEN/SEP_EHZ_UW_current.html

note that the last part of that URL is the date. Go back and change the "30" to 29,28,27...20 to see how it has been changing over the last few days.

The links just above the recording are of other stations in the Cascades volcano range. Kinda interesting to click through on them and see who is having sympathy rumblies. Note - if you have changed the date - i.e. are looking at the Mount St. Helen's dome recording for the 25th instead of today, and click on other stations, it gives you those station's recordings for the 25th, not the current readings.

News article:


MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. - The lava dome in Mount St. Helens' crater apparently is growing, possibly a new sign of an impending eruption, but a major explosion doesn't seem likely, a top volcano scientist said Wednesday.

"There seems to be some movement in the lava dome," said Jeff Wynn, chief scientist at the U.S. Geological Survey (news - web sites)'s Cascade Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Wash., about 50 miles south of the mountain.

The pressure could come either from a buildup of gases within the 8,364-foot volcano, which erupted with devastating force in 1980, or from molten rock moving into the dome, Wynn said. The volcano began stirring again last week.

Seth Moran, a seismologist at the observatory, estimated the initial movement at 4 centimeters, about an inch and a half.

Wynn said the movement "sort of suggests that we're getting closer" to an eruption that could hurl rocks and ash a few thousand feet into the air.

any connection to the CA quakes??

oooooeeeeeeoooooo.... take a look at this!!

Was Mount St. Helens deliberately woken up?

using the above trick of changing the dates to look backward I found these. Notice anything "funny"? Suggestion - open in new windows so you can jump back and forth.
Start with Sept. 1st:
- I don't see anything weird about that one... just a "control"

But the next day:
.. look at 12:02


So... is there some reasonable explanation?


Someone setting off the whole mountain range??

Hi Kent – is someone trying to set off the whole mountain range – very artificial looking traces on all the links below.

If you have cable tv, Ch 2 NWCN is best for hourly, on site  reports. Or go to their website > NWCN.com < for live updates including photos.

10:pm rpt said there is now evidence of probable magma movement. Again, I remind all those within a 500 mi radius to have dust masks. Check local weather reports to see in what direction the winds are blowing.

My prayers are with all, especially my beloved friend, James Gilliland. His ranch is due east of St Helens on the 3,500 ft level of the western side of Mt. Adams.
