Redoubt watch

Posted: Friday, April 17, 2009

According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory the eruption of Redoubt continues. Clear weather allows web cameras and satellites to view a vigorous steam plume, possibly containing minor ash, and rising up to 16,000 feet according to pilot reports. Low-level seismicity continues and a lava dome is growing in the vent. Plume conditions Thursday afternoon allowed views of the base of the north side of the dome.

The volcano remains at aviation color code orange and alert level watch. The potential for renewed explosive activity is high and may resume with little warning, likely generating an ash plume and a lahar.
