Power has been restored to both VolcanoCams. A recent power failure at the Johnston Ridge Observatory (JRO) took both cameras offline. When power was restored, some circuit breakers tripped and the ClassicCam remained offline. Winter weather conditions prevented MSH Maintenance staff from reaching the JRO to manually rest the breakers until today.
Below is the reason why it took so long to gain access to the JRO and retore power.
You are looking approximately south toward Mount St. Helens from near the the JRO observation platform (in front of you in the picture). The approximate snow depth ranges from two to three feet, with up to six foot drifts in front of you in the observation area. The entrance to the JRO (closed for the winter) is ahead and to your right. For a full size image, click on this image link (Warning! This is a HUGE 5 MB image!)

Both cameras are back online. Power was restored to the ClassicCam this morning about the same time a 4.3 earthquake struck near the Johnston Ridge Observatory. MSH maintenance staff felt the strong jolt and reported no injuries.

This past weekend the Johnston Ridge Observatory (JRO) experienced a power failure. The failure knocked off both VolcanoCams.
As of this morning, full power to the JRO has not been restored. The VolcanocamHD camera is back online and showing us a beautiful view of Mount St. Helens. However, the ClassicCam remains offline.
