All quiet on the volcano front. USGS has lowered the threat level. For the time being they don't think a major eruption is "imminent" since seismicity dropped off and stayed dropped over the last 24 hours. But of course, that could change at any time. Personally, I think St. Helens is a bit of a show-off - now that the clouds and rain have moved in what would be the point of erupting when nobody could see it? The scientists are now saying there might not be a bigger eruption - she could just keep puffing away with these minor emissions for days or weeks, instead.
