Redoubt webcam

As dawn arrives over Alaska's Cook Inlet, we may see the results of last nights 5 eruption events at Mt. Redoubt, 106 miles southwest of Anchorage. The USGS reports clouds of ash rising to 50,000 feet.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory has a webcam on a Chevron oil platform that offers a great view when weather permits [right, static photo of Mt. Redoubt in clear skies]

A number of geobloggers and websites are following this closely with great detail. I won't attempt to duplicate their work - a good source for updates is the Volcanism Blog.
