Redoubt watch

Posted: Monday, April 06, 2009

According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory Web site as of 4:52 p.m. Sunday the eruption of Mount Redoubt continues. Small earthquakes and intermittent tremor continue.

The AVO web camera shows a continuous plume composed primarily of water vapor and gas rising above the summit to less than 15,000 feet and drifting east. A smaller, intermittent plume has been sighted coming from the north base of the volcano; this is to be expected as hot debris from the explosion interacts with snow, ice, and water.

The volcano remains at aviation color code red and alert level warning.
