Redoubt Volcano, Alaska - John Seach

Overflights of Redoubt volcano in Alaska have revealed new areas of fumaroles and steaming in September 2008. On September 16, a pilot flying nearby reported a strong smell of hydrogen sulphide. The following week, residents of a cabin near Wadell Lake 25 km northeast of Redoubt volcano reported loud noises coming from the volcano. An overflight on 27th September showed several fractures and circular openings in the upper Drift glacier that had not been seen before. No abnormal seismic activity has been detected. Redoubt Volcano remains at aviation color code GREEN and alert level NORMAL.
