Mount Redoubt Volcano in Alaska
finally started erupting Monday
morning 3-23-09. The last eruption in
1989-90 looked strikingly similar to
some of the eruptions from Mount St.
Helens in the early 1980's. Mount
Redoubt's eruption in 1990 dumped
ash primarily north and west of the
volcano and lightly dusting Anchorage
and Kenai. Anchorage is experiencing
ashfall from Redoubt which could cause
havoc for airline traffic to the city -
Alaska Airlines cancelled 19 flights on
Monday. For the latest news check our

Mount Redoubt looks a lot like Mount St. Helens doesn't it?
