Here in Anchorage, we’re on “Volcano Watch” with Mt. Redoubt about 100 miles away. The last time she blew, in 1989, we got some ash on the ground. But Kenai is just 70 miles away–and they’re the more likely recipient of the lion’s share of ash. This matters to travelers because the ash disrupts air travel (and every other kind of travel, for that matter). The Alaska Volcano Observatory is a good resource.
