It's been nearly 20 years since Alaska's Mount Redoubt erupted, but that time of tranquillity might end.
Recent seismic activity could be a prelude to an eruption, "perhaps within hours to days," said geologists from the Alaska Volcano Observatory.
The 10,197-foot peak sits about 50 miles west of Kenai and 100 miles southwest of Anchorage. It last erupted during a five-month stretch beginning December 1989.

An overflight last week by the Alaska Volcano Observatory saw increased steaming on Redoubt Volcano. Scientists flew to the volcano about 51 miles east of Kenai following reports on Sept. 16 by a pilot of a strong hydrogen sulphide odour and on Sept. 23 by nearby residents of loud noises coming from the volcano. No increased earthquake activity has been measured, and the alert level for Redoubt remains at normal and the aviation code remains at green, according to an information statement released by AVO today.
