As of 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, Mount Redoubt remained on watch status, with an aviation alert level of orange, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

AVO scientists reported seismicity remains elevated. A regional earthquake, preliminary magnitude 3.4, occurred about 70 miles northeast of Redoubt at 11:22 AKDT.

Additional explosive events are possible with little or no warning. These could result in ash emission, tephra fallout, and lahar and flood inundation in the Drift River Valley.
