CURRENT STATUS REPORT
Tuesday, October 26, 2004 3:45 PM ADT (23:45 UTC)
ALASKA VOLCANOES WITH ELEVATED COLOR CODES:
MOUNT SPURR VOLCANO (CAVW#1103-04)
61°18' N 152°15' W, Summit Elevation 11,070 ft (3,374 m)
Current Level of Concern Color Code: YELLOW
Elevated levels of seismicity continue to be recorded beneath Mt. Spurr
volcano. Today, about 3 earthquakes per hour have been recorded and this is
a slight increase over the previous several days. Clouds obscured views of
the volcano by satellite and web camera much of the day. There are no
indications that an eruption is imminent.
**Earlier today, AVO issued an information release describing the change in
color code at Shishaldin and Veniaminof volcanoes from YELLOW to GREEN.
Unless the level of unrest at these two volcanoes increases, they will not
be reported on in future daily updates. **
