We had a raising of the alert level and lots of warnings … predictions of doom … a huge media buildup … a long period of nothing happening (apparently) … and now the alert level has been lowered again. So, what exactly happened with all that Mount Redoubt stuff?
If you want to know what happened and where we stand now, the best place to go is this comprehensive post at Dr Erik Klemetti’s Eruptions blog: And that about wraps it up for Redoubt. The warning signs may not have led to an eruption in the short term on this occasion, but that doesn’t mean that monitoring should not continue and that such warnings should not be taken seriously in the future. Volcanoes are dangerous and unpredictable things.
