ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Saturday, June 20, 2009, 1:05 PM AKDT (Saturday, June 20, 2009, 21:05 UTC)
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 eruption of Redoubt volcano continues. Seismic activity is low, but remains above background level. The lava dome at the summit is unstable and could collapse with little or no warning, likely generating significant ash emissions and possible flooding in the Drift River valley. Cloudy conditions at Redoubt are currently obscuring webcam views. No ash signals have been observed in satellite or radar imagery.
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 hazards.
