Mt. Redoubt in Alaska became active on Sunday evening with a series of eruptions beginning late in the evening.  The eruption has spawned earthquakes and mudflows.  It may create a new lava dome also.    According to Tina Neal, a volcanologist at the Alaska Volcano Observatory in Anchorage, the eruption may continue for an indefinite period of time.  For more information on the Mt. Redoubt eruption, see here.
