Mount St. Helens, Washington’s most active volcano, is showing signs of reawakening, according to scientists, who say it’s only a matter of time until it erupts again. An eruption started 10 years ago that lasted until 2008, outlined in The Columbian newspaper. The lava dome has since rebuilt and the U.S. Geological Survey is seeing signs of magma activity under the volcano, according to the Associated Press.
The good news is that most homeowner and auto policies will cover some degree of damage due to volcanic eruptions, but there are, of course, exceptions. The key is evaluating your home and auto policies and talking to your insurance agent before an eruption occurs.
