Friday, February 27, 2015 9:35 AM PST (Friday, February 27, 2015 17:35 UTC)

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. Complimentary data from geodetic, hydrologic, and geochemical monitoring systems installed at subsets of Cascade Range volcanoes also did not reveal any anomalous activity.

Recent Observations: Seismicity at Cascade Range volcanoes in Washington and Oregon was at background levels during the week. Field crews took advantage of good weather earlier in the week to repair stations in the crater and on the flanks of Mount St. Helens and to survey sections along the North Fork of the Toutle River.
