Three big eruptions since this morning, one in progress right now. Some high altitude ash. NOAA predicts maybe a little ash fall out here in the Valley. I haven’t seen any yet.
This is a view west of the upper Drift River Valley and Redoubt volcano. Notice the steam plume from the top of the mountain. Flood waters and deposits in Drift Valley are a result of an eruption early yesterday morning. Normally this time of year any water in the valley would be frozen solid, the warm running river you see is from the rapidly melting glacier on top of Mount Redoubt.
