VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - A pilot observed light volcanic ash in the air Thursday near Mount St. Helens.

A spokeswoman, Carolyn Driedger, said Friday the ash was kicked up by high winds - a common phenomenon at St. Helens, Mount Hood and Mount Rainier in late summer and fall when the snowpack has melted and the ground is dry.
