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. Seismicity is at a low level, but remains above background. The extended lava dome within the crater appears unstable and could fail with little or no warning, leading to significant ash emissions and possible lahars in the Drift River valley. Clear webcam views today show continued steaming from the summit region. No ash signals have been observed in satellite or radar imagery.
A field crew is out at Redoubt today collecting GPS data.
AVO continues to monitor Redoubt's activity 24/7. AVO will provide frequent updates of the volcano's status and the earliest possible warning of significant explosive activity and other hazardous phenomena.
