The eruption of Redoubt volcano continues. Seismic data suggest continued lava dome growth. Brief glimpses of the volcano today in web camera images show a vigorous steam and gas plume emanating from the vent area.
AVO has a field crew working in the vicinity of the volcano collecting ash samples from explosive events earlier in the eruption.
Additional explosive events with accompanying ash clouds, ash fall, and mudflows are possible and can occur with little or no warning. AVO will maintain 24/7 operations in order to quickly detect renewed significant explosive activity and other hazardous phenomena.CLEVELAND VOLCANO
