Mount St. Helens about to blow again, and you can watch

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam - Washington State, USA

This is an image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley.

This image automatically updates approximately every five minutes.

We are in close contact with USGS and the University of Washington Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network. We will post updates as needed. There is no immediate cause for concern beyond the normal awareness that earthquakes and small steam explosions and/or small debris flows are always a possibility in the crater of the volcano. For the latest information, check our our Special Conditions Report for any current activity.
