Kudos to the maintenance folks at Mount St. Helens for their efforts in bringing back the VolcanoCam Classic camera "from the dead." Earlier it was determined a power malfunction to the camera was a fault. By around Noon yesterday the camera was back online, even though the weather made repairs difficult. Enjoy your cloudy views today from both cameras!

Yesterday afternoon we lost contact with the VolcanoCam Classic camera. Mount St. Helens maintenance ran a few checks and found the problem is localized to the camera itself. We will manually inspect the camera just as soon as the weather makes it safe to do so.

We're gearing up for the 30th anniversary of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens around here. Check out the commemorative web site. We hope you can join us with some of the planned activities.
The cameras are working just fine this morning. Don't expect any views of the volcano today, problably not even though the weekend. A major winter storm arrived this morning dumping lots of rain at low elavations with snow higher up.
Also, we're been getting a few queries about the time stamp on the images. Yup, we know about that, too. Here's the scoop. The date changes for Daylight Savings are hard-coded into the two web servers supporting the cameras. The patch files from the software manufacturers don't exist. We can't even manually change the time ourselves. So bear with us until the calendar finally arrives at the traditional change date.
