Mt. ReDoubt Update: 4/2 @ 5:45 p.m.

Small earthquakes have been occurring at Mt. ReDoubt at the rate of 3 to 4 per minute since about 8:00 this morning. Low level emissions of steam, volcanic gases, and ash continue.

The first photo of a Mount ReDoubt and the cache was taken from Kenai. The second photo of the ash covered terrain surrounding ReDoubt was taken March 31. It is offered as a contrast to photos taken before the current cycle of eruptions to show the change that has occurred in the region (for example, see "Mt. ReDoubt Update: 3/31 @ 6:30 p.m.").

The map provided depicts the earthquake activity recorded at ReDoubt's summit during the current cycle of eruptions. Today's activity is not included (click on photos or map to enlarge).
