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 levels of background 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.
Recent Observations: Cascade Range volcanoes have displayed only background-level seismicity throughout the week. Field crews were at work in and around Mount St. Helens. Ground deformation measurements, gravimetric and photogrammetric surveys, and geologic and hydrologic studies were conducted; a new gas-monitor was installed on the 2004-2008 lava dome, and maintenance or repair was completed at seismic and deformation monitoring stations.
