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:
"This camera provides a view of the north flank of Redoubt."
"The camera is located on Unocal Platform Anna, approximately 38 miles SE of Mt. Spurr, it was originally pointed at Mt. Spurr."
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.
