Redoubt still uneasy, scientists still unsure

ANCHORAGE - Scientists said unrest continues at Mount Redoubt, but there's still been no eruption at the volcano a hundred miles southwest of Anchorage.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said there have been intermittent earthquakes throughout the week.

Scientists didn't perform any field work at Redoubt this week, but said a gas-measurement flight was scheduled Saturday.

In late January, the observatory began detecting a sharp increase in earthquakes beneath Mount Redoubt. Geologists have since warned that an eruption could occur at any time. However, they say it also is entirely possible the volcano won't erupt.
