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

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