Scientists in Washington state are predicting an eruption of the Mount St. Helens volcano in the next few days. NPR's Noah Adams talks with Dan Dzurisin of the U.S. Geologic Survey about the activity brewing under the surface of the already-shattered mountain, which was the scene of a massive surprise eruption in 1980.
