Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Remember when Mount St. Helens erupted? I don’t. The eruption everyone remembers from 1980 is before my time, so I wanted to check into this volcano. I found the Mount St. Helens Volcano Cam. This Web Cam is updated every five minutes with a static image (meaning there isn’t live feed, just a picture.) But don’t try to view at night or you’ll get a black screen—this is for daylight viewing only.

“This is an image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley.”

There was a weather update when I visited. “Weather Note — October 06, 2004 at 9:00 am PDT — There is nothing wrong with the above image. You are viewing rain and clouds at Mount St. Helens right now as a weather front moves through the Pacific Northwest.” Which is really cool since the image I was viewing looked like steam was rolling out of the volcano, on second glance it did really look like storm clouds like they posted.

And if you want images of the eruptions, hang in there. They are going to be posting pictures from those eruptions and a video of the first eruption. I’ve been checking back daily. I’m curious to see how it all looked.
