When Mount St. Helens blew its top in 1980, it wasn't a surprise that it happened, but even today the extent of the damage is hard to fathom. The eruption knocked down 100-foot trees like matchsticks and killed just about everything in its path. There have been several smaller eruptions since then, but nothing like what happened in 1980. Evolutionary biologist and ecologist John Bishop knows Mount St. Helens well; he has been working on the mountain for 20 years. "It began with the largest...

Until earlier this week, the most recent significant tremor at Mount St. Helens was in October of 2004. On Sunday January 13th, when geologist and private pilot John S. Pallister was flying over the volcano in southwestern Washington he was surprised to spot some steam rising from a fracture in Mount St. Helens' crater. This not only caught Pallister's attention, enough to take some pictures; it also gained the attention of scientists who now think something is moving inside the volcano....

MOUNT ST. HELENS, Wash. -- For all the talks interpretive guide Nick Racine has given to visitors about this volcano, standing on the crater rim and watching as the mountain pumps out tons of rock in its own rebirth left him nearly speechless. "Holy cow, it's incredible," said Racine, who is normally assigned to the Johnston Ridge Observatory on the other side of the volcano. "It's hard to describe." Racine joined a group of rangers, scientists and journalists in a five-hour ascent of...

MOUNT ST. HELENS WILDLIFE AREA, Wash. -- More than 25 years after its eruption turned this river valley into moonscape, elk living in the shadow of Mount St. Helens are starving to death at a rate that has alarmed many observers. This winter's elk die-off was the highest recorded by state wildlife managers in seven years, and some critics say the survivors are so undernourished and the forage so poor that another major winter kill could be on the way. State officials have responded by bumping...

SEATTLE (Reuters) - A rock fall at Mount Saint Helens caused a large gray cloud of dust to appear above the volcano on Tuesday, but there was no sign of increased seismic activity. Seismic levels at Mount Saint Helens, which came back to life last year by emitting steam and ash, are "amazingly regular," said Seth Moran, a seismologist at the U.S. Geological Survey. Mount St. Helens erupted in 1980 and killed 57 people and was mostly dormant until September 2004, when new magma...
