Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: From Till and others (1993): "In January and February of 1965, pilots reported that five fissures had opened on the southeast wall of Redoubt and were emitting water vapor and hot gases (Anchorage Daily News, January 29 and 30, 1965; Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, February 4, 1965)." This activity does not constitute a volcanic eruption.

From the Associated Press (1965): "A fifth fissure has opened high on the southeast wall of troubled Mt. Redoubt, 125 miles southwest of here.

"Capt. Victor L. Fonday, Northern Consolidated Airlines pilot, reported new activity on the mountain yesterday. He said he flew to within a thousand feet of the mountain Tuesday and saw wisps of steam coming from the new fissure.

"Volcanic activity was observed at the 10,197 foot mountain by airline pilots last week. The U.S. Geological Survey office in Anchorage said it is the first reported volcanic activity on the mountain since 1933.

"Fondy [sic] said he circled the volcano twice to get a close-up view. He said four fissures, opened on the mountain last week, are continuing to pour out hot gasses and steam."
