Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
The eruption of Redoubt volcano continues. Seismic and satellite data over the past day indicate continued lava dome growth. Web camera images this morning show a vigorous steam plume. This plume may contain small amounts of ash, though no ash has been detected in radar. Satellite data indicate plume is extending northwest of volcano at altitudes < 20,000'.
Additional significant 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.
