Redoubt's Still Erupting!

Redoubt eruption, 3/28/2009 by Tricia Joy Sadler.

Redoubt is still at it!

Be sure to keep your students aware of this! Even though it seems far away from most of the continental US, it's actually quite important as many international flights have had to be diverted because of the enormous ash clouds.

From the AVO website:
"The last large explosive eruption occurred at 7:23pm on Saturday, March 28 (Image above). Since then there have been several smaller ash-steam bursts, but these have produced only minor amounts of ash and plume heights have been generally below 25,000 feet. Any ash fall was likely confined to the immediate vicinity of the volcano."
