An earthquake has struck in Washington State near Glacier Peak Volcano.
While a small event in magnitude, this is a sign of a much greater seismic unrest situation panning out now across the whole region of the West coast.
See the most recent earthquake forecast which covers the Pacific Northwest, and what we should expect going forward this week.
The Pacific Northwest is in an obvious state of flux, along with the whole of the West coast (at the moment). The greater global earthquake unrest is showing up at multiple dormant volcanoes across the Western United States.
I made a full website post a few days ago regarding Glacier Peak having new monitoring equipment installed by the USGS to watch for possible signs of eruption. Now we see an earthquake strike the same general area.
Just a few days ago, before this new volcanic earthquake movement began, we were already seeing multiple volcanic earthquakes show activity up the whole of the West coast of the United States.
This earthquake near Glacier Peak follows a series of other volcanic related earthquakes over the past week(s).
There’s an ancient (dormant) butte volcano at the location of the Las Vegas, Nevada Earthquake. Coordinates of the epicenter are: 37°17’31.19″N , 114°39’18.23″W .
If you look at the sides of the mesa, you can make out the old undersea lava flows from the small Butte volcano there.
Clearly this Nevada volcanic butte is VERY old since no water has been over Nevada in millions of years.
A huge volcanic complex – Agua Nueva – at the Texas / Mexico border (near Fort Stockton TX).
Mount Hood volcano, and Two Sisters Twin Peaks volcanoes in Oregon.
Glacier Peak volcano, and Mount Baker volcano in Washington State.
Mammoth Mountain volcano, Mono Lake volcano, Inyo Craters, Mount Shasta volcano , Crater Mountain, and Salton Sea Volcano in California
Markagunt Volcanic Plateau in Utah.
Yellowstone volcano in Wyoming / Idaho.
Bitner Butte volcano (in NW Nevada), and this Unnamed butte volcano in Southeast Nevada.
Finally, the new ongoing eruption off the coast of Oregon at the Axial Seamount volcano…… All happened in the past 2 weeks.
