AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, April 16, 2009, 12:48 PM AKDT (Thursday, April 16, 2009, 20:48 UTC)


REDOUBT VOLCANO (VNUM #313030)
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 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.
