Volcanic eruption in Alaska

Series Redoubt eruptions (Mount Redoubt), began in Alaska March 22, 2009 and continues to this day.
The ash cloud rose to an altitude of 15 km and blocked air traffic over the Cook Inlet.
Since 1900, Mount Redoubt erupted at least five times, with the last eruption took place in 1989.

Volcanic ash on the hood of a truck in Nakiska, Alaska. The ash cloud was formed for the day March 28, 2009, and began to settle approximately at 16:16 local time. The settling of ash lasted about 5 minutes. It is reported that the thickness of the layer of fallen ash was less than 1 mm, but the ash particles - large size of coarse sand.

Photos district, in which the eruption of Mount Redoubt. Made from Landsat 5, March 26, 2009 at 13:07. The photo shows the big brown ash cloud over Cook Inlet and the western part of the Kenai Peninsula (right side of photo). You can also see the white plume of smoke and steam that rises from the summit crater (upper left corner). Dark torrents flow from the crater to the north through the glacier to the river Drift River. (Ron Beck, EROS / Alaska Volcano Observatory / US Geological Survey)
