Scientists from New Zealand have determined that Mt. St. Helens could actually be a Supervolcano, with several large volcanoes in the region linking together via underground caverns to create one large one with Mt. St. Helens at the center.
According to findings from New Zealand scientists, Mt. St. Helens could be exactly that. Mt. St. Helens has been known for years as one of many volcanoes that litter Washington State and the "ring of fire" that works its way around the Pacific Ocean."

Magma does not come from the "center" of the earth. It comes from the Mantle and Crust. Volcanos are not located "all over" this world. They occur along plate boundries, faults and hot spots.
