ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, October 10, 2013, 11:22 AM AKDT (Thursday, October 10, 2013, 19:22 UTC)
56°11'52" N 159°23'35" W,
Summit Elevation 8225 ft (2507 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
The eruption of Veniaminof continues with the likely effusion of lava from the cone in the summit caldera. Seismic activity remains elevated, but the amplitude of the activity has been on a gradual downward trend over the past day. It is unclear how this downward trend relates to eruptive activity as satellite and web camera images have been obscured by clouds over the past day. No ash has been observed in this most recent phase of the eruption, which began on October 6. AVO will continue to monitor the volcano closely.
