Mount Redoubt erupted at about 11:38 p.m. tonight. The ash plume is estimated at 50,000 feet above sea level. Mount Redoubt is approximately 100 miles southeast of Anchorage. I'll keep everyone posted.
I'm following the news on adn.com, the U.S. Geological Survey, and twitter.
The ash plume is expected to reach Anchorage at approximately 2 a.m. Alaska time.
