Alaska’s Mount Redoubt Erupts

Alaska’s Mt. Redoubt volcano erupted several times late Sunday and early Monday, sending an ash plume nearly 12 miles into the air, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.

The Anchorage Daily News reported that a fifth eruption took place at about 4:30 a.m. Alaska Daylight Time (AKDT), or 8:30 a.m. EDT.

The National Weather Service detected ash from the fifth eruption at 60,000 feet, far higher than most commercial jetliners fly.

Fine gray dust was falling Monday morning on small communities north of Anchorage, though the state’s largest city itself was spared.

“It’s coming down,” Rita Jackson, 56, said early Monday morning at a 24-hour grocery store in Willow, about 50 miles north of Anchorage.

She slid her fingers across the hood of her car, through a dusting of ash.


There goes the CO2 count. I wonder how the G.W. Cult will spin this to blame humans.

    You have me linked in your Blogroll as “Shallow Thought” and I appreciate it. Recently I moved from to and have a new template. Here is the new link if you want to update it.
