Alaska volcano's eruption triggers flood, halts flights

Mount Redoubt erupted twice on Thursday, including a huge explosion that sent a cloud of ash 65,000 feet above sea level, higher than any since the mountain came to life on Sunday night. The eruptions triggered a flood of mud-saturated water in the Drift River and halted commercial flights in and out of Anchorage.
