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 suggest continued lava dome growth. Spectacularly clear views of the volcano today show a steam and gas plume, possibly containing minor amounts of ash, above the volcano and moving to the south west. Satellite imagery shows a thermal anomaly and a vigorous steam plume above and downwind (up to 15 mi) of the volcano.
Additional explosive events producing 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.
