Redoubt Mini-update for 2/18/2009

Not much to add to the Redoubt Watch this week. The volcano continuing to experience increased seismicity and AVO is watching it closely. Sounds like we’ll be doing the same for the time being.

  1. In the meantime, I wanted to alert people of renewed activity at Chaiten. Since there is not a recent post about Chaiten, I am putting it here.
    The Volcanism Blog ( ) is reporting the following:
    “The Chilean national emergencies office, ONEMI, is reporting ‘a reactivation of the eruptive process’ at Chaitén volcano today at around 11:00 local time. Evacuation of the remaining residents of the town is under way. ONEMI reports the eruption of a considerable column of ash.
    A good friend of The Volcanism Blog reports from nearby Futaleufú that at 1pm local time today ‘Futa is engulfed in total darkness with a fine layer of ash falling’.
    And the Chaitén airfield webcam has chosen today to go offline.
    More on this event when we have it.”
