The Alaska Volcano Observatory has today lowered the alert level for Mount Redoubt. The aviation colour code has been lowered from orange to yellow, and the alert level from watch to advisory. This comes after some two weeks of low seismicity. The AVO’s statement about the change, released at 20:59 GMT, is as follows:

2009-03-10 12:59:56 – Status Report

AVO lowered the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level to YELLOW/Advisory this morning. Seismic activity is low but above background levels. It remains possible for unrest at the volcano to change rapidly, advancing from relatively low levels to eruption in time periods as short as 24 hours or less.

AVO will continue to monitor Redoubt closely, but will no longer be formally staffed 24 hours per day.

Erik Klemetti has more on this at Eruptions.
