CASCADE RANGE VOLCANOES
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN
Activity Update: All volcanoes in the Cascade Range of Oregon and Washington are at normal background levels of seismicity. These include Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Adams in Washington State; and Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Three Sisters, Newberry, and Crater Lake in Oregon. Additionally, GPS data from most of the major volcanoes, and sparse real-time hydrologic and geochemical monitoring, show no anomalous activity.
Recent Observations: Monitoring systems show that activity at Cascade Range volcanoes remains at background levels. Owing to unusually warm, dry weather this year in the Pacific Northwest, Cascade Range volcanoes have already lost nearly all of their seasonal snowpack, which is atypical for late July. Rockfalls on the volcanoes become increasingly common under such late-summer conditions.

This is a static 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.
The VolcanoCam image automatically updates approximately every five minutes.
