And the Earth is Angry

Mother Nature continues to rain down her displeasure, this time in the form of a volcano eruption in Alaska. The 4,134-foot Mount Augustine Volcano, about 180 miles southwest of Anchorage last erupted in 1986. Ash from a 7-mile-high column drifted over Anchorage and kept flights out of the skies over Cook Inlet.

The explosion sent ash estimated 30,000 feet into the Alaska sky.

"It looks like the ash cloud is likely to remain east of Anchorage," he said an anonymous Federal Aviation Administration member. "At this time, I have not seen any impact," he said.

The explosions, with magnitude 2.6 seismic activity, occurred at 4:44 a.m. Alaska Standard Time.
