Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
The aviation color code and volcano alert level for Ahyi Seamount was raised to Yellow and Advisory yesterday following observations of unrest at the volcano in satellite and hydrophone data over the past several weeks. Observations over the past 24 hours show no activity in hydrophone or satellite data. Given recent activity, the volcano could resume signs of unrest without a lot of warning and marine hazards above or near the seamount are possible.
