Mt. ReDoubt Update: 3/28 @ 10:30 p.m.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory has reported that another eruption of Mt. ReDoubt occurred this evening at 7:23 p.m. This is the eighteenth significant eruption since last Sunday. The National Weather Service reports "a cloud top of at least 45,000 ft. Mudflows in the Drift River Valley are possible."

Ashfall from the previous eruption at 3:30 p.m. is being reported in locations from Anchorage to Valdez. Anchorage is under an ashfall alert at this time.

Currently, seismicity has decreased, but remains well above background.

It certainly has been a busy week around here. I am looking forward to things returning to a more peaceful state - like in this photo of Mt. ReDoubt that I took last summer.
