An earthquake has just struck near Glacier Peak Volcano in Washington state.
Measuring at a magnitude 3.0, this Washington state volcanic event comes directly after ANOTHER volcano just showed earthquake activity on the West coast in Oregon.
This moderate volcanic related earthquake occurred less than 1 hour after ANOTHER 3.0 magnitude earthquake due South near Mount Hood volcano in Oregon. I made a full post on the previous 3.0M which just occurred .
Now we see yet another 3.0M due North , and at another volcano no less.
This is troubling to see multiple moderate volcanic earthquakes occur in such a rapid succession, in light of the current eruption taking place off the shores of Oregon at the undersea volcano along the Axial seamount, these volcanic earthquakes should be a warning sign to everyone that pressure is building in the Pacific Northwest.
We need to be extra vigilant in the light of the other news from 2 weeks ago , that a new undersea VOLCANIC ERUPTION is currently taking place off the West coast of Oregon.
The new eruption is taking place due West of this new earthquake near Mount Hood volcano.
On May 1, 2015 it was announced that a new layer of lava was laid out across the sea floor off the coast of Oregon. The lava came from a fresh eruption along the Juan De Fuca / Gorda Escarpment / Axial Seamount.
Video covering the new volcanic eruption 2 weeks ago (May 1 2015) here:
With an ACTIVE volcanic eruption just a small distance away from Mount Hood, and with dormant volcanoes showing earthquake activity further down the West coast in California, we need to watch for further noteworthy earthquake development in this region of the Pacific Northwest.
Keep watch in the areas warned 4 days ago (warned in the Earthquake forecast). The area near Vancouver Island British Columbia is expected to show higher earthquake activity in the next few days.
