AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, May 28, 2009, 1:19 PM AKDT (Thursday, May 28, 2009, 21:19 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 2009 Redoubt eruption continues. Seismic activity remains above background levels and consists of small, discrete earthquakes in the summit region. The lava dome at the summit appears unstable and could fail with little or no warning. Dome failure would likely cause ash emissions to over 30,000 feet above sea level and possible lahars in the Drift River valley.

Cloudy conditions today prevent views of the volcano by web camera and sattelite.

AVO is monitoring Redoubt volcano closely and the operations center in Anchorage is staffed 24/7. AVO will provide frequent updates of the volcano's status and the earliest possible warning of significant explosive activity and other hazardous phenomena.
