TECH TIMES   09 November 2015   USA   Mount St. Helens  

The eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980 has claimed 57 lives and caused serious damage to homes and infrastructure. Now, scientists have revealed that the volcano could possibly erupt again in the future based on findings of a pioneering $3 million study of the volcano's plumbing system.

Geologists who studied the volcano have found a second enormous chamber lying between seven to 23 miles beneath the surface. This massive pool of molten rock was found connected to a smaller chamber lying directly beneath the volcano.
