The volcano erupted at 10:38 p.m., according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory. The Air Force says the ash cloud, estimated to be as high as 50,000 feet, is expected to arrive in Anchorage by 2 a.m.
UPDATE: Watching the news, and it looks like it might miss us, though. Ash fall expected in Talkeetna, Willow area (sounds like it's already falling) but Anchorage might get missed. This volcano has been threatening to go FOREVER now.

Sweet. Looping radar images. I don't totally understand what I'm seeing, but you might.
