I just felt a quick, violent quake a couple minutes ago. There's a lot of talk about how a volcano or two is bulging in eastern Oregon, so another Mt. Saint Helens may have a remote chance of happening. Needless to say, every little jolt freaks me out, if indeed any eruptions are taking place.

Nothing shows up here yet, but in looking around for info I found some local area readouts of richter scale devices. I didn't know anyone had written richter scale-to-web interfaces, but this is the one near Mt. Hood, showing its output as it happens. I'm guessing someone bumped this one.

Anyway, it was probably a small 4 point something local shaker. No big whoop.
