Mount St. Helens volcano in southern Washington has erupted many times during the last 4000 years, usually after brief dormant periods. This behavior pattern suggests that the volcano, last active in 1857, will erupt again - perhaps within the next few decades. Potential volcanic hazards of several kinds should be considered in planning for land use near the volcano.
