Redoubt volcano: news & activity updates

Redoubt volcano, Alaska, USA, activity updates: increasing seismic levels - near eruption possible!

Friday Jan 30, 2009 23:27 PM | BY: TS

The volcano Redoubt in Alaska is very close to an eruption. The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports that there are increasing seismic levels. Until now there is no eruption visible. The staff of the observatory is watching the volcano on a 24 hours base. The alert level is at orange, what is a serious sign for a near eruption. The ice covered volcano may cause lahars and later eventually even pyroclastic flows (?). The situation is surely dangerous after the experience USA made with Mt. St. Helens.
