Mount Redoubt exploded this morning with its highest ash cloud yet, sending a plume 65 thousand feet in the air. An hour before, the volcano pushed out ash to 30 thousand feet. Redoubt recorded several other smaller seismic events today. The activity shut down most flights in and out of Anchorage and sent an cloud towards the Kenai Peninsula that scattered trace amounts of ash south of Ninilchik.
