Geologists in Washington State are trying to learn what caused a rush of water from Mt (Ra-Near) Rainier yesterday.

[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Mt. Rainier, WA;]


The rush could be from a melting glacier. It washed rocks and trees onto a road and raised the level of the Nisqually River.
No injuries were reported, but some campers left sites near the base of the 14-thousand foot volcano.
One researcher thinks the sudden rush of water may have been a glacial outburst, where water gets trapped under the glacier and eventually gushes out.
