THE KENAI PENINSULA WITH ESTIMATED ARRIVAL OF ASH BETWEEN NOON

SOUTHERN TIP OF THE KENAI PENINSULA...INCLUDING HOMER AND
COMMUNITIES ALONG KACHEMAK BAY. A TRACE TO ONE EIGHT OF AN INCH OF
ASH MAY ACCUMULATE THIS AFTERNOON.

Hope all is well, Deb.
It is good so far, I think most of it will be south of us. They did say we could get trace amounts on this end. Am hoping the winds stay the same. My worst concern is the power going out for an extended time, but that shouldn't be a problem with this one. Have my water jugs filled, bathtub filled, stocked up enough...

"For airlines and travelers, this latest eruption stands to cause more problems than other recent Redoubt explosions because the plume is on course to stop southbound flights that connect Alaska to the Lower 48."Redoubt ash clouds threaten major air routes: Volcanoes | adn.com

They state that Anchorage may see a wee bit of a dusting. As long as you have the grog, Deb, everything else is gravy

...no ashfall is expected in anchorage...

low level ash clouds from this morning's eruptions of mount redoubt
are tracking southeastward toward the southwestern kenai
peninsula...where ashfall advisories are in effect through 4 pm
this afternoon. High level ash clouds up above 30000 feet are
headed for anchorage and will affect aviation. However...ash at
these levels typically will not fall to the ground. Therefore...no
ashfall is expected in the anchorage area.

Just received from our travel Dept:

Quote:
Alaska Airlines has suspended operations both in and out of Anchorage for today. They will assess the situation after daylight tomorrow.
The Anchorage Daily News is reporting that Era has cancelled some flights, but I have not received official word.

ADN is posting a photo from down in Homer of the eruption. Someone finally got a partial glimpse, looks pretty spectacular. Redoubt isn't the only thing about to blow it's top here in Anchorage if these damn clouds don't clear up soon!

I saw that one from Homer, I was surprised at how white it looked.
