So the quake along the NNW fracture zone was actually magmatic eh?
Would be fun when it arrives @ the volcano but is likely a squeeze in of the magma filled fracture responsible for the 1980 event rather than a new event.
The pace of cascadia convergence is relatively slow, so new events @ St.Helens has approx 150 year recurrence interval times.
Would be rather more exciting if Mazama, Shasta, Hood, Baker or the 3 sisters were to show uplifts as this would be a new fracture filled with magma being tectonically squelched along strike & going up in the world after running out of horizontal "room to manoeuvre".
Will keep watching that space...
