Scientists warn Alaska volcano's rumbling could be eruption prelude

New seismic activity at Mount Redoubt, 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, has increased significantly and may be the prelude to an eruption, "perhaps within hours to days," the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported Sunday. The 10,197-foot peak -- located about 50 miles west of Kenai and 100 miles southwest of Anchorage -- last erupted from December 1989 through April 1990.
