Mount Rainer Earthquake- Washington State

Another earthquake near a volcano!

A 2.5 magnitude quake hit Mount Rainer in Washington State 2.17 miles deep today, August 3, 2013. Another realization the American West is earthquake prone and volcanically active right now with the numerous small earthquakes rattling the southern boundary of Long Valley Caldera in Yellowstone and a 2.5 magnitude quake in the Greater Los Angeles area today!!!

Mount Rainer has a summit level of 14,411 feet. This is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. The last magmatic eruption was about a 1,000 years ago.
