|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Report prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey.|
Steaming at Pagan volcano has diminished and therefore the aviation color code and alert levels are being lowered to unassigned. There are no monitoring instruments installed on Pagan and thus we do not use the levels Green or Normal because we cannot say definitely that activity is at background. Monitoring is by satellite and ground observers.
Access to the island may be restricted by the CNMI government. Contact the Emergency Management Office to get the latest information.
