Alaska volcano still restless

Unrest continues at Alaska's Mount Redoubt.


Unrest continues at Alaska's Mount Redoubt.

Geologist Marianne Guffanti at the Alaska Volcano Observatory said Sunday that elevated seismicity continues at the volcano, with tremors in various intensities.

Geologists say a small plume of steam also is visible at Redoubt.

It's been two weeks since the observatory detected a sharp increase in earthquakes beneath the mountain about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Geologists have since warned that an eruption could occur.

Guffanti says an eruption is still considered likely, within days or weeks.
