4.3 M Earthquake Near Mt. St. Helens.

USGS reports 4.3 M earthquake 6 mi. NNW of Mt. St. Helens, 3.1 mi depth. Occurred at 10:35. Did you feel it?

Geologists say that this earthquake is related to tectonic plate activity and not any volcanic activity. Did you know that there is a long fault line running northwest through Mt. St. Helens that has the potential to generate a significant earthquake? Are you ready?
