Meanwhile, in Alaska, Mount Redoubt is Still Erupting

"Alaska volcano erupts 4 times on Friday"
CNN (March 28, 2009)

"(CNN) -- Mount Redoubt volcano in southern Alaska erupted four times on Friday, shooting ash as high as 51,000 feet, scientists said.

"The latest eruption took place at 8:30 p.m. (12:30 a.m. Saturday ET), according to the National Weather Service. That eruption followed three other ones earlier Friday.

"The eruptions are the latest in a series that began Sunday.

"The Alaska Volcano Observatory said the alert level remains at its highest possible designation -- red -- indicating that an eruption is under way or imminent and that the eruption will produce a 'significant emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere.'..."

Alaska Airlines wasn't flying into or out of Anchorage on Thursday, but had a few flights yesterday.

I hadn't been paying that much attention to Mount Redoubt this week, what with the flood down in the Red River Valley of the North. I suppose it may have something to do with my having grown up in Fargo-Moorhead, and living about 125 miles away. Alaska: that's a bit farther off.
