Redoubt continues with small eruptions

Posted: Sunday, April 12, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Mount Redoubt about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage continues to be active.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said the volcano continued to produce many small, discrete earthquakes. It also was producing a steam plume, that may contain some ash. The steam is visible on a Webcam placed at low altitudes near the volcano.

Seismologists said Redoubt is in a dome-building phase, where it will continue like this for a time until the dome collapses, resulting in a much larger explosion.

Then, it will begin dome-building again.
