Unrest at Redoubt Volcano continues. No eruption has occurred. Since early yesterday morning, tremor amplitudes have been fairly low, with a few discrete small earthquakes occurring every hour. This activity is similar to what we have observed over much of the current period of unrest, and is still above background levels.
Clear views of the volcano by satellite and the Hut web camera show nothing unusual. Weather permitting, a gas-measurement flight is scheduled for tomorrow.
AVO continues to monitor Redoubt Volcano closely and the observatory is staffed 24 hours a day.CLEVELAND VOLCANO
