SEATTLE (AP) - The U. S. Geological Survey is starting to improve monitoring of Glacier Peak, a Cascades volcano in eastern Snohomish County.

It’s the closest volcano to Seattle - just 70 miles northeast of the city.

The office of Congresswoman Suzan DelBene says improved monitoring will lead to better forecasting of possible eruptions. Currently, Glacier Peak has only one seismic station.
