Redoubt Erupts!

At 11:56 p.m. Sunday night, Mt. Redoubt erupted sending smoke and ash 50,000 feet into the air. At 12:28 p.m. light winds have been reported, blowing the volcanic debris toward Anchorage. According to the U.S. Air Force, an ash cloud is expected to hit Anchorage by 2 a.m.
Residents along Turnagain Arm and within Anchorage are cautioned to stay indoors. If outdoors, cover face with damp cloth.
Turn off and cover electronic appliances and vehicles if possible.
When ash hits ice, it is severely slippery and hazardous to drive on.
