Earthquakes strike regions of Mt. St. Helens and northern Italy

January 25, 2012SEATTLEA magnitude 3.4 earthquake occurred at 2:51 a.m. Wednesday about 10 miles north of Mount St. Helens. The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network reports mild shaking was felt in Longview, Castle Rock and Morton. The University of Washington reports the quake was followed by a half-dozen small aftershocks in the next hour. Small quakes are common in the area around the volcano in southwest Washington. –The Republic 
Northern Italy: A 5.1 magnitude earthquake struck the northern region of Italy at a depth of 10.2 km or 6.3 miles below the surface. The epicenter of the earthquake was about 13 km from Parma, Italy and about 368 km from Rome. The earthquake was preceded by a much shallower 4.0 foreshock some 47 km away. Italy has seen a growing amount of seismic unrest along the northern mountainous region of the country. The Alpide Belt which runs along the southern region of Europe and Asia continues to show signs of stress. In the meantime, we continue to monitor the stresses erupting along the planet’s lower southern hemisphere. A 5.1 magnitude earthquake was reported west of New Zealand’s South Island. –The Extinction Protocol

    Mt St Helens is not the Grandfather you should worry about, St Helens is the little sister, if the Grandfather wakes up, Mt Rainer, then I would be worried. I have never seen earthquake activity in that area in all my life. All of a sudden its active so people better wake up.
