Whalephant Volcanic Eruption

Comment: This is supposedly the April eruption of Mount Redoubt, but the double mushroom cloud doesn't look right.

According to this video from MSNBC, it erupted in the middle of the night. And, according to this National Geographic slide show, which includes a picture similar to this one, though it says it's from the 1990 eruption, the Geological Survey's camera (which was set up far closer to the mountain itself) was knocked out of service just before it erupted.
