REDOUBT VOLCANO (CAVW #1103-03-)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Aviation Color Code: [color:ceb3=#fff]ORANGE
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH

Unrest at Redoubt Volcano continues, though no eruption has yet occurred. Seismicity levels have increased since yesterday evening and have also risen markedly over the last hour. Pilot reports, clear AVO webcam views, and satellite and radar views confirm that Redoubt Volcano has not yet erupted at the time of this report. Redoubt remains at Aviation Color Code [color:ceb3=#fff]ORANGE and Volcano Alert Level WATCH.

The likely hood that the volcano will erupt soon (today) is very high. I have supplies, masks, goggles all prepared. The most we will get is ash coverage but the ash can cause some problems. Thankfully I have been through a previous eruption in 2006 when Mt. Augustine (visible from my deck) blew. I'm sure if we do get a heavy enough ash drop my internet is not going to be working. Anyone interested in following the events can go to the Alaska Volcano Observatory website at http://www.avo.alaska.edu/.

I've been following events, glad to see the alert level is still only at "watch". Likely most of you just want to get it over with at this point rather than endure the watching and waiting.
Hopefully you guys won't have a huge mess to clean up! Stay safe!!
