Earthquakes under Mount St. Helens volcano during 1988-2016; magmatic recharge swarms are marked, along with the most recent earthquake swarm. (image: USGS / Cascade Volcano Observatory via Eruptions Blog)
Since the beginning of 2016, a swarm of small earthquakes has been occurring at under the volcano, suggesting that another phase of magma recharge is currently taking place. ...plus

(Very) tiny earthquakes occur regularly at the volcano, but nothing suggests anything unusual going on at the volcano for the moment.

During 13-19 February lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued. ...plus
Wed, 6 Feb 2008, 21:36
At 23-29 January lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued. A steam plume that rose from the dome and slightly above the crater rim was visible on 25 January.
Sat, 3 Nov 2007, 18:08
Deformation-monitoring instruments indicated that during
24-30 October lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued.
Thu, 27 Sep 2007, 19:48
From 19-25 September lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued.
Fri, 14 Sep 2007, 08:50
No significant changes have been registered at Mt. St. Helens. CVO's instruments monitoring the volcano indicate that the lava dome continues be active and grow slowly.
Thu, 30 Aug 2007, 23:47
Data from deformation-monitoring instruments indicated that during 22-28 August lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued. Seismicity persisted at low levels, punctuated by M 1.5-2.5, and occasionally larger, earthquakes. Clouds occasionally inhibited visual observations.
Thu, 5 Apr 2007, 22:08
Data from deformation-monitoring instruments and observations from a remote camera showed that during 28 March-3 April, lava-dome growth at Mount St. Helens continued. Seismicity persisted at low levels, punctuated by M 1.5-2.5 and occasionally larger earthquakes. On 3 April, a GPS unit on an active spine showed W-ward movement at a rate of about 30 cm/day. ...plus

Prior to the 1980 eruption, Mount St. Helens formed a conical, youthful volcano sometimes called the Fuji-san of America. During the 1980 eruption the upper 400 m of the summit was removed by collapse of the slope, that left a 2 x 3.5 km horseshoe-shaped crater now partially filled by a lava dome. Mount St. Helens is a very young volcano and only about 40-50,000 years old.
It has been the most active volcano in the Cascade Range during the past 10,000 years, and the modern edifice was constructed during the last 2,200 years, when the volcano produced basaltic as well as andesitic and dacitic products from summit and flank vents. Historical eruptions in the 19th century were witnessed by early settlers.

Current activity of Bardarbunga volcano, Iceland
: An intense seismic crisis started at Bárdarbunga volcano on 16 August 2014 and is continuing at the time of writing (23 Aug). It may or may not lead to a volcanic eruption, possibly under the Vatnajökull ice cap.
