USGS Volcano Hazards Program Volcano Update

AVO update page and observatory web site

Nearly continuous low-level volcanic tremor has been ongoing, and satellite images have detected thermal anomalies at Veniaminof over the past 24 hours. FAA web camera images of the volcano from Perryville showed a very weak emission of vapor, possibly containing minor amounts of ash, within the caldera for several hours this morning beginning at 07:10 AM AKDT (1510 UTC). These data indicate an ongoing low-level eruption characterized by effusion of lava and emission of minor amounts of ash and steam.
