60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WARNING
Current Aviation Color Code: RED
The 2009 eruption of Redoubt Volcano continues. Beginning around 8:30 AM AKDT this morning, small repetitive volcanic earthquakes became visible on stations closest to the summit crater. Emission of steam, volcanic gases, and minor amounts of ash continue and have been visible in the Redoubt Hut web camera images today. Satellite views of the volcano showed a low-level continuous plume containing some ash throughout most of the night and views are now obscured by clouds. These emissions have generally been at low altitudes (less than 15,000 feet above sea level). Thermal anomalies continue to be observed in satellite views and are most likely due to the extrusion of a lava dome in the summit crater.
