      Very scary news, I am happy I don't live there. I'd totally go away to a safer location until they think it is more secure.

          The general story in US TV news is that it is likely to erupt soon but nothing anywhere near as big as the initial eruption. CNN said it could spew ash and steam "10,000 yards" but failed to mention if that was vertical or horizontal.

          They are evacuating the immediate area, though.

            I live here in Washington, they say today or tomorrow. Not as bad as in 1980. I was going to drive down there with a friend to check it out, but couldn't make it. (They closed the visitor center down anyways)

              How about that wife of mine, scheduling a minor volcano eruption for my birthday on the 1st?

              Been keeping track of this since I'm in Portland, collecting CNN homepage screenshots etc. Volcano cam Here if you're interested. Don't expect to get onto that site once the bugger actually erupts though.

                  What is there to evacuate? The entire surrounding land (that was affected during the previous eruption) is now a national forest that doesn't allow inhabitation by people. The nearest building is something like 3 miles away and it is a Volcano Observatory.

                    Aside from ash and noxious gasses particularly prone to collect in low-lying spots, the entire surrounding area is forrested and brushed, and there hasn't been much rain this summer. The danger isn't so much that everyone will be overrun with molten lava. It's more a matter of people managing to breathe while dodging residual fires. Then there's the potential shockwave to consider should the mountain blow for real. During the 80s eruption it pretty much flattened everything for miles around.
