The eruption of Veniaminof continues. A weak steam plume, possibly containing minor amounts of ash restricted to an area within a few miles of the vent, was visible in webcam data this morning. Elevated surface temperatures and seismic tremor continue to be observed in satellite and seismic data. These data indicate that effusion and fountaining of lava from the active vent are likely ongoing.
