CURRENT STATUS REPORT
Wednesday, January 12, 2005 4:00 PM AST (January 12, 0100 UTC)
ALASKA VOLCANOES WITH ELEVATED COLOR CODES:
MOUNT VENIAMINOF VOLCANO (CAVW #1102-07)
56°10'N 159°23'W, Summit Cone Elevation 7,073 ft (2,156 m)
Current Level of Concern Color Code: ORANGE
Seismicity remains at elevated levels, though the amplitude has diminished
significantly over the last 48 hours. Satellite images and web camera
images were unavailable because of clouds. Seismic signals indicate that
ash emissions probably continue, but less frequently than earlier in the
We expect that steam and ash emissions may continue and could pose a hazard
to people and low flying aircraft in the vicinity of the active cone.
Small ash falls outside of the summit caldera are possible.

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 Mount Spurr.
No activity was visible in clear views of the volcano by satellite and web
camera today. There are no indications that an eruption is imminent.
