REDOUBT VOLCANO (VNUM #313030)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Seismic activity at Redoubt has been low over the past 24 hours but remains above background levels.

Satellite views showed nothing unusual. This morning, a steam plume rising just above the summit of the volcano was visible by web camera.

It is still possible for unrest at the volcano to change rapidly, and seismic activity or other signs of unrest could escalate over time periods as short as 24 hours or less. AVO continues to monitor Redoubt closely, but the AVO operations center in Anchorage is no longer formally staffed 24 hours per day.

Seismic activity at Okmok has been at a low level over the past 24 hours. Clouds have obscured the volcano in satellite views and AVO has received no reports of activity.
