Volcano still in a holding pattern

February 02, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Groans and steam emanated from Mt. Redoubt yet another day, but the volcano showed no dramatic burst of energy, geologists noted.

"It looks like a volcano that wants to erupt, and our general impression is that it's more likely to erupt than not," said Tina Neal of the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

As a precaution, Elmendorf Air Force Base near Anchorage, about 100 miles to the northeast, was moving five C-17 cargo planes to McChord Air Force Base in Washington.
