The 14th of February 2010,  Valentines Day, the earth moved for some. Mt. St. Helens in Washington state experienced a 4.3 magnitude earthquake this morning at 10:58am and lasted about three minutes, and was felt as far away as Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Hood. Scientist said the earthquakes occurred in the seismic zone, which is a series of tectonic faults running beneath Mount St. Helens.  A 4.3 magnitude earthquake, may not sound like much, but when it occurs in this zone beneath an active volcano it can bring about explosive results. The final trigger on May 18th 1980, that triggered a chain reaction measured only 5.1 magnitude. So for now the good news is that the mountain still seems to be sleeping, but activity in this region is showing signs of increase.
