ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The swarm of small shallow earthquakes that began April 5 at the Redoubt volcano has ended, and the shaking returned to background levels.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory lowered the aviation code Monday from yellow to green.

Eruptions from the 10,197-foot volcano early last year disrupted air travel, dusted Anchorage with ash and sent a mudflow that partially flooded the Drift River Oil Terminal.

just thought it was interesting that the volcanoes that seemed so distant from the city have such a drastic effect.
