AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, June 3, 2009, 1:11 PM AKDT (Wednesday, June 3, 2009, 21:11 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

Note: there are errors in the last report that went out at 12:03PM AKDT, please disregard that notice; this is the current status report for today.

The 2009 Redoubt eruption continues. Seismic activity has been low over the last 24 hours. The lava dome appears unstable and could fail with little or no warning, leading to significant ash emissions and possible lahars in the Drift River valley. Cloudy conditions have obscured satellite views most of the day but clear views by web camera this morning show a steam plume rising from the summit and drifting to the north. A minor dusting of ash is visible on the NE flank of the volcano and is likely related to rock fall activity. Two field crews are out today, one to measure gas and make observations of the dome and the other to work on debris flow deposits in the Drift River valley.

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 hazardous phenomena.
