Redoubt volcano seems to have simmered down over recent hours, but this morning scientists were still watching for signs of an eruption, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory.
Scientists upgraded the aviation color code for Redoubt from yellow to orange over the weekend, indicating that an eruption may be imminent. The code remains the same but activity has settled down, without any major shaking since midnight.
“Things have dropped down quite a bit,” said Kristi Wallace, an AVO research geologist.
Geologists may make a flight above the volcano to gather samples of gases later today, she said.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we’ll have an eruption.
