Redoubt volcano stops shaking

Posted: Wednesday, April 14, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The swarm of small shallow earthquakes that began April 5 at the Redoubt volcano has ended, and the shaking returned to background levels.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory lowered the aviation code Monday from yellow to green.

Eruptions from the 10,197-foot volcano early last year disrupted air travel, dusted Anchorage with ash and sent a mudflow that partially flooded the Drift River Oil Terminal.
