Augustine's Been Active

It's been increasingly active since May of 2005, but in the past few days there's been lots more activity. Yesterday, the volcano erupted 5 times, and the colour code was raised to RED.

The news from the Alaska Volcano Observatory for Friday the 13th of January, 2006:
Augustine volcano has entered a period of repetitive explosive eruptions. Today's eruptive events occurred at 4:44 AM, 8:47 AM, 11:22 AM, and 4:40 PM. Each of these events produced ash plumes, mudflows, and pyroclastic flows on the island.
