Let’s hope Mt St Augustine doesn’t blow also

Big mess up there, I’ll be praying for everyone on the Kenai peninsula, especially my friend Dmitri who lives right across the inlet about 20 miles from this eruption…in Anchor Point

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska’s Mount Redoubt erupted several times Thursday, spewing a more than 12-mile-high cloud that could drop ash on Anchorage for the first time since the volcano began erupting Sunday night.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said the first eruption about 8:30 a.m. shot an ash cloud about 30,000 feet in the air, and a second eruption about an hour later sent ash 65,000 feet high — the highest cloud since the eruptions began. Several smaller eruptions followed, with none of their plumes surpassing 20,000 feet.

The largest eruption caused a mud flow into the Drift River near the base of the volcano.

According to the National Weather Service, prevailing winds are expected to carry ash from the larger eruption east across Cook Inlet toward some of Alaska‘s larger communities
