    Here is what was at Brad's link a few minutes ago:

    Due to very high load on our web server, we can only support a very limited website. We are working to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. Thanks!

    Information Statement
    Friday, January 30, 2009 7:16 AM AKST (1616 UTC)


    Redoubt Volcano
    60?29'7" N 152?44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
    Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
    Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE

    Unrest at Redoubt Volcano continues, though no eruption has yet occurred. Seismicity levels have risen within the last 8 hours. Redoubt remains at Aviation Color Code ORANGE and Volcano Alert Level WATCH.

    AVO's website has been overwhelmed with traffic this morning because of extensive national news coverage. A backup, low-bandwidth webserver is operating with limited information.

    And eventually down as well. Do they still call it glissading if it's on lava? Don't forget your axe...

    More news articles about the impending eruption of Redoubt. The web cams seem to all be back on like again. This was the image from the Redoubt-CI cam a few minutes ago. Hopefully the orange glow just continues to be the sunset...

    The temperature reading on this is strange. Current Anchorage temp is +5F.

    No, the temperature is correct. There are palm trees in that part of AK.

    I'm guessing that is the temperature inside the camera housing.
