Hi Annissa!

One of the Scottish fora I watch has several members in the Vancouver area and they have been commenting on this for a couple of days. Last I saw, there was an alert to area medical facilities to be overly prepared.

I pray that it will not be a bad one and that people will not be displaced. Or worse.

Peace,
Mike

I live in central calif and there is alot of talk about how all the recent quake activity we've been having could be a major trigger factor in causing St. Helens eruption. Parkfield CA had a couple 6.0 and 5.9 and two days ago with over 400 aftershocks since. Last week, it was Quaileys Camp NV border, same thing. 6.0 and hundreds of back to back aftershocks in just two days. Now, it's as close as being my back yard. We had a 5.9 yesterday and a 5.0 today and back to back aftershocks that haven't stoped yet. Plus, Parkfield continues to have shakes 5.0 and higher. It's common to have 10 maybe 15 aftershocks,and small earthquakes happening all the time somewhere in calif, But what's going on right now could definately unsettle Mt. St. Helen.

I was living in oregon when it blew last time and it was not nice.

Peace,
susan

I was living in Pullman, WA during the last eruption. I was only a year and a half old so my mom told me all about it.

My sister, Amanda, was in the hospital in Seattle (a good six hour drive away from Pullman) and my parents had to go back to Pullman because they were managing an apartment complex. It was a Sunday but since the week had been so hard on them they skipped church. They didn't want to get caught skipping church so they shut all the lights off and kept the t.v. off. Mom was putting me down for a nap when she saw the sky turn pitch black. She didn't know what was happening.

My dad being the entrepreuer that he is, rented a power washer to help people get ash out of their driveways and roads (for a fee, of course), but the sewers were entirely blocked very quickly. There was no way to get anywhere. If you tried to drive, your engine sucked up the ash and died.

I remember a few years later seeing ash on the side of the road.

According to the news, the earthquakes are a result of St. Helen's. And the volcano has been spurting billowing white clouds of steam today. There's a possibility that this release of steam is all that will occur. Of course, we can't ever be sure of what nature is going to do.

People have been predicting the end of the world since I can remember. If you believe the Bible, Christ said that noone will know ahead of time. One thing I know for sure, then, is that if someone is predicting it for a certain time, that's exactly when it won't happen! I do hope all in that area are safe.

I heard on the news there is a 70% chanse it will blow but no one is at risk. Whatever...It's Mother Nature and she decides.

As far as the end of the world as we know it...change would be good. And if California breaks off in my back yard...well it will be a new exsperiece for me. Don't know if I've ever died before.


Give Peace a Chance...All We Need is Love...Forgive and Be Forgiven...and The World Still Turns,

That's exactly what I believe too! :D I think I might have lived through three end of the worlds so far... probably more that I am forgetting...

When those giant space rocks hit that planet (can't remember which one) but if they missed they would have hit earth. I think it was in 1994 - I think Hanna Barbera made a cartoon series that talked about it even. You think God put those planets there for a reason? :D

2000! When all the computers were going to go offline and we wouldn't get water or food forever.

2001 - since it didn't happen in 2000 - why not this year??

I wish I could remember the other ones... I'm sure there have been more since I was born in 1982 - can anyone think of anymore?

Anyways - I hope those people will be alright - and I hope they leave if needed... and not stay behind like some do. :(

I live in Washington. I'd have to admit I'm not keeping as good of tabs on it as I should be, but I live far enough away from it to where it doesn't get us. My Mother was living in this area for the last eruption and I think she said we barely even saw any ash. I can't remember. Anyway, what I found weird was the last eruption was just a few days after my Mother turned 32. Back then my oldest sister was in third grade, but now my oldest sister will be 32 next month and her oldest son is in third grade. I found that all just a bit strange. lol I'll be sure to keep a better eye on it. :)

that is a bit strange...the 32 and third grade thing. I don't believe in coincidenses. I think of things like that as syncrinization and believe it's happens for some reason. Like life is repeating itself so you have the chance to do something you didn't do before. Maybe.

I just realized that I was 32 when I lived up there. Now that is weird :?:

What is UP with all these hurricanes, volcanoes and earth quakes??? Very very strange. 8O
When I turned on CNN yesterday and saw Mount St. Helens erupting it hit me like a ton of bricks. Romans 8:22 says: We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

These are birth pains before the second coming of Jesus. Because of the central California earthquake scientists predict a stronger earthquake now in Southern California. Yesterday there were 3 volcanoes that erupted (one in Italy, Mexico and the one in Washington state - I believe all of these were dormant volcanoes (not sure about Mexico-definitely WA & Italy).
