ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, June 15, 2009, 12:49 PM AKDT (Monday, June 15, 2009, 20:49 UTC)
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 extended lava dome remains unstable and could fail with little or no warning, leading to significant ash emissions and possible lahars in the Drift River valley. Webcam images today are largely obscured by clouds. No ash signals have been observed in satellite or radar imagery.
AVO scientists will be flying over Redoubt today to measure gas emissions from the steam/gas plume.
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 hazards.
