Still no eruption on the Alaskan volcano.

But it’s starting to look like it’ll be soon:

If Mt. Redoubt blows, Alaskans may get a light show

The volcano watch for Alaska’s Mt. Redoubt continues apace.

According to the Anchorage Daily News:

An observation flight by scientists this afternoon reported no sign of ash emission yet, but discovered significant steaming from a new melt depression at the mouth of the summit crater….

That flight took place Jan. 30.

Not much to add to this, except that: volcanoes are pretty cool, and if there’s an eruption where no-one gets hurt it’d be an interesting and educational thing to see. So if you live near Mt. Redoubt, move well away from the area, please. Let’s not have another Mount St. Helens.
