‘Very high threat’ Snohomish County volcano may get new monitoring stations

Recently completed lidar maps of Glacier Peak strip away the heavy vegetation and reveal the underlying topography, including tracks of past eruptions and lahars.

Glacier Peak is considered a "very high threat" by the U.S. Geological Survey, based on frequency and types of eruptions, hazards, and how many people could be affected. It sits about 25 miles southeast of Darrington and less than 70 miles northeast of Seattle.
