ANCHORAGE - Alaska's Redoubt Volcano is still active, but little has changed recently. Scientists at the Alaska Volcano Observatory said last week that the volcano continues to be restless, with volcanic tremors continuing. In late January, the observatory began detecting a sharp increase in earthquakes beneath Mount Redoubt, which is about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage. Geologists have since warned that an eruption could occur at any time. However, they say it also is possible the volcano won't erupt.
