AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Sunday, April 5, 2009, 2:40 PM AKDT (Sunday, April 5, 2009, 22:40 UTC)


REDOUBT VOLCANO (VNUM #313030)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING
Current Aviation Color Code: RED

The eruption of Redoubt continues. Small earthquakes and intermittent tremor continue at Redoubt. A brief signal at about 10:36 this morning was likely a small rock avalanche high on the north flank of the volcano.

The AVO web camera shows a continuous plume composed primarily of water vapor and gas rising above the summit to less than 15,000 feet and drifting southeast. A smaller, intermittent plume has been sighted coming from the northwest base of the volcano; this is to be expected as hot debris from yesterday's explosion interacts with snow, ice, and water.

AVO has a gas flight in progress at the volcano today.

The volcano remains at aviation color code RED and alert level WARNING.

Please see the National Weather Service Redoubt coordination page http://pafc.arh.noaa.gov/volcano.php for the latest ash fall information.

Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

AVO has received no new reports of activity at Cleveland over the last week. Partly cloudy satellite views of the volcano show no activity.
