MOUNT ST HELENS, Wash. (AP) Two small earthquakes around Mount St Helens in Washington state startled residents as far away as Portland, Oregon and Seattle overnight.

The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network says Wednesday the 3.9-magnitude and 2.1-magnitude temblors struck shortly after midnight near the volcanic peak.

They were followed by several much smaller quakes in the hours before dawn.

Residents reported feeling the largest earthquake as far away as Portland, Oregon -- about 70 miles (112 kilometers) to the south -- and in a large area of southwest Washington.

Mount St. Helens is best known for a spectacular eruption in 1980 that coated the region in ash and blew off the mountain's peak.
