More volcanic eruptions expected

ALASKA (NBC) -- A volatile volcano wakes up.

Scientists count six recent eruptions at Alaska's Mount Redoubt, and expect more.

These photos were taken just before the eruptions, which started overnight Sunday into yesterday.

An ash plume shot nine miles into the sky, raining gray dust down on nearby towns.

That ash can ruin engines, and airlines are rerouting flights.

The volcano last erupted during a four-month period from 1989 to 90.
