Alaskans brace for Redoubt Volcano eruption


news.yahoo.com

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Hardware stores and auto parts shops scored a post-holiday run of business this week as Anchorage-area residents stocked up on protective eyewear and masks ahead of a possible eruption of Mount Redoubt.

Monitoring earthquakes underneath the 10,200-foot Redoubt Volcano about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, scientists from the Alaska Volcano Observatory warned that an eruption was imminent, sending experienced Alaskans shopping for protection against a dusty shower of...

Good luck to all in that area. Seems like everything is in flux lately. People betraying friendships, families breaking up, war the economy and all the earth changes. I know this happens but when put into context with all the other stuff one has to wonder whats happened to our happy little world.

I am not an end timer, my belief is that the world is changing and mankind is changing to. Seems like everyday we are getting crazy weather, earthquakes and volcanoes wanting to erupt.

Maybe God is waking us up to pull us all together as one, instead of 6 billion?

Im in agreement here.. I am not a doom or gloomer either. Yet its always good to keep a heads up on these kinds of things..
So many people think about saving the earth.. As you can see the Earth is doing just fine, and its not going anywhere.. WE are! Pack your bags folks we are going away.. And the Earth will be here a long long time after we are gone!!! - G. Carlin

All those people who think we are a threat to this earth.. Ask those Alaskans how the Earth is doing this month..
I'd say the earth is working on phasing us out. We are a surface nuisance. Like fleas on a dog.

But I do wish them all well, and pray for their safety. Why oh why does man build towns and cities near such places.. You would think we would know better than to test mother nature..
Build a city or town as the base of a volcano are kinda asking for death.
Granted many didnt take that into mind when they moved into such places.

Even here in Florida where I live.. We are not safe from hurricanes or huge waves.. We here in Florida will be taken back into the ocean.. Its only a matter of time.. Be it water, fire, earth, wind.. Mother nature is a powerful source.. And mans aggrogance will be his downfall.

I live in Santa Barbara.... I know how you feel. The San Andreas decides it's time to go and I'll be treading water long before the first news report.

If you want to keep an eye on Mount Redoubt, I'd recommend the link below. It's updated quite often and has a webcam.

I'm also from Florida. We have been lucky the last couple years with hurricanes..I figure we due for a big one this year..But hurricanes cant sneak up on us like a volcano or an earthquake.

Good luck to everyone in Alaska.

I do hope for all Alaskan's safety if this event does occur. Does anybody have any information on the size or extent the damages that would be caused?

How many people is this affecting on a wide scale? Any atmostpheric dangers?

There should be a resident subject matter specialist who can answer these questions.

Hehe; Yea, us Alaskan folk are doing just fine - just nother day round here and many of us have been there done that a time or two. Thanks for the concern though.. The world IS shifting around a bit but like all great hosts, sometimes you have to shed some parasites; you know?

There are no towns at the base of Redoubt but the damage from ash fall can extend for hundreds of miles. The end of the Drift River has only an oil exportation dock, that I'm sure has been evacuated. Our biggest danger is to aircraft since we are a huge international hub and to urban enviroments unprepared for ash fall events within a hundred miles or so.

Bobby Jindal should apologize about his volcano comment.
