What you need to know about the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, including where to watch from now on
The last time a major volcanic eruption in the United States hit this island, it was a little more than 100 years ago.
Since then, the country’s volcanoes have erupted in the Pacific Northwest, Arizona and the southeastern United States, including a devastating eruption on March 14, 1945, on Mount St. Helena.
The Mount St!
Helens eruption in May of this year was the most destructive to date, with more than 2,100 people dead and millions displaced.
The eruption is believed to have been triggered by an atmospheric release of gases, including carbon dioxide, from a nearby volcanic eruption.
It’s not clear if the volcano will erupt again anytime soon, but it’s still possible, scientists say.
“We’re not sure, but there’s no way that the volcano can go away,” said Jeff P. Zielinski, an eruption expert with the National Weather Service in Flagstaff, Ariz.
He told the AP that he believes that the Mount St.-Helens volcanic eruption is still active and may be responsible for the deaths and injuries that have been reported so far.
“They’re still working their way back and they’re still looking for the culprit,” Zielinksi said.
But there’s still some doubt about who is to blame.
“There’s a lot of theories out there,” said Steve Schulenberg, a geophysicist at the University of California, Berkeley, who was not involved in the research.
“The big one is the CO 2 in the air.
There’s a volcano in Hawaii that’s been going on for a long time, but they haven’t been able to pinpoint a cause.”
In an email, the Mount Washington Volcano Observatory in Seattle said it’s “too early” to determine the cause of the volcano’s eruption, and it will not comment on the current investigation.
But the volcano is not the only one that is suspected of causing the latest eruption, researchers say.
The California Volcanoes Observatory in San Francisco also said that it is investigating the possibility that a small volcano on the coast of Hawaii may have triggered a major eruption there.
“I don’t think it’s a big surprise that the volcanoes around the Pacific have been erupting since the last one,” Ziegel said.
“If you have a small, low-intensity eruption that doesn’t reach a big eruption that is quite an interesting idea.”
Zielink said the research team believes that an atmospheric disturbance was responsible for causing the Mount Saint Helens eruption, but the mechanism of the volcanic release is still a mystery.
“It’s not something that we’re really sure of, but we’re working on it,” he said.
He also said it will be years before anyone can definitively determine who caused the eruption.
“What we do know is that this was a very big eruption,” Zille said.
