Mount Redoubt Webcams: Watching Eruptions on the Web

This is an excerpt from an earlier post.

Mount Redoubt, in Alaska, began erupting last Sunday (March 22, 2009). People in Anchorage, Alaska, about a hundred miles away, are uncomfortably up close and personal with the eruptions.

The rest of us can watch, through several webcams:

"Live webcam images of various Alaskan volcanoes"
Alaska Volcano Observatory
Including two for Mount Redoubt:
  • Hut
    "This camera provides a view of the north flank of Redoubt."
  • CI
    "The camera is located on Unocal Platform Anna, approximately 38 miles SE of Mt. Spurr, it was originally pointed at Mt. Spurr."
The Alaska Volcano Observatory looks like a pretty good resource for information about Alaska's volcanoes.

And, on Mount Redoubt: "Redoubt Activity"

Mount Redoubt is roughly a hundred miles away from Anchorage, near the east edge of the Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, west of that long island across Cook Inlet from Clam Gultch.
