|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Volcanic unrest continues at Pagan Volcano. A very weak steam and gas plume was observed during clear periods in satellite imagery this week. |
Pagan is not monitored with ground-based geophysical instrumentation and the only source of information is satellite observation and occasional reports from observers who visit the island. We will continue to evaluate satellite imagery and on-island reports when they become available, but because the volcano is not monitored with ground-based instruments, we cannot provide advanced warning of activity.
Access to the island may be restricted by the CNMI government. Contact the EMO for the latest information.
