Yesterday morning, KOMO's meteorologist Kristin Clark tweeted a video of Mount Rainier with a slim cloud wafting over it. And she added this comment, Mt. Rainier appears to be venting. 🗻

That scared the bejeezus out of us! I mean it's a volcano, right? The geologist up at Mount Rainier said the mountain is not venting or showing any signs of abnormal behavior.

“It’s just a cloud,” said Mount Rainier National Park Service geologist Scott Beason, “Completely normal.”

At this writing, Kristin Clark has yet to respond to her scary and kind of irresponsible tweet.
