Mt St Helens

There's an alert bar on the bottom of the screen letting us know that the state is on full alert (level three) for the volcano because there was another steam eruption and large earthquakes. Then they said that if it does go, the ash isn't likely to go any further than 10 kilometers. Considering that ash from the 1980 eruption made it as far as Florida, I'm thinking this isn't going to be a "major" eruption by any standards except for the media.
