BREAKING: New Mt. St. Helens eruption - live video

A new eruption of steam is coming from Mt. St. Helens in Washington state. But as we watch the live shots this morning, the clouds are much darker, which may or may not indicate the presence of magma or lava as opposed to only steam, which has gone up over the past three days.

NorthWest Cable News and their affiliates KGW-TV/DT Portland & KING-TV/DT Seattle are providing live streaming coverage (WMP).

The USGS has maintained their Level 3 alert, which is the highest volcano alert level. The USGS has said that there is at least a 70% chance of a "major" eruption over the near term, ranging from the immediate timeframe to as far out as two to three weeks from now.

Can I ask a question? This live feed - does it only come on when the USGS comes on and reports something and on only when something is happening?

Please let me know. Thanks,

This particular feed will come up when NWCN (along with their Seattle & Portland affiliates - KING-TV & KGW-TV respectively) bring up live coverage; usually when an eruption takes place.
