After 7 eruptions Mount Redoubt Ash finally makes its way to Anchorage. The winds have been very cooperative thus far keeping most of the ash to the south and west of anchorage.
If you have to drive during any ash fall it is a good idea to put pantyhose over your air filter. This will help keep harmful dust out of your engine.
We are hanging close to the house tonight and hopefully this little bit of ash fall is all we get. Get out your dust masks!
Redoubt has effected Drift River which is near the volcano. Drift river is an anadromous stream, so it will be interesting to see how it effects the returning salmon runs.
Check out google search AVO for more info on the very active Mount Redoubt.
