Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
The eruption of Redoubt volcano continues. Seismic data over the past day is indicative of continued lava dome growth. Clear views in today's web camera show a vigorous steam and gas plume emanating from the vent area.
AVO has a field crew en route to the volcano to make observations and do maintenance on equipment. Airborne gas measurements also will be made on a separate mission later today.
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.
Please see the National Weather Service Redoubt coordination page http://pafc.arh.noaa.gov/volcano.php for the latest ash fall information.
