60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
The 2009 eruption of Redoubt volcano continues. Seismic activity is low, but remains above background level. The lava dome remains unstable and could fail with little or no warning, leading to significant ash emissions and lahars in the Drift River valley. Web camera and satellite images have been largely obscured by clouds today. No ash signals have been observed in satellite or radar imagery.
AVO continues to monitor Redoubt's activity 24/7 and will provide frequent updates of the volcano's status and the earliest possible warning of significant explosive activity and other hazards.
