Mount St. Helens Suffers Swarms of Earthquake

Located near Washington State, Mount St. Helens had a series of small tremors which stoked memories of earlier times when the volcano had erupted.

Back in 1980, it blew up flinging ashes and lava into the air. 57 people died as a result of the explosion. Also nearby forests caught fire and snow on mountain tops melted causing floods.

The frequency of the recent tremors show that trouble is brewing deep at the core of the volcano. Mount St. Helens is the most closely monitored of volcanoes. That is because no one wants the 1980 disaster to repeat itself.
