    I wonder if there were any eclipses, exact squares, grand crosses or smaller earthquakes before, during or after the Mt.St.Helen’s eruption. This might give a clue as to if and when a catastrophic earthquake might strike Vancouver, WA.

    I forgot to mention that there was a 6.0 earthquake in New Zealand on 11/18/11 and an eclipse afterwards on 11/25/11. I wonder if perhaps there was a telling eclipse around the time of the Mt.St.Helen’s eruption.
