Summit Elevation 9373 ft (2857 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Low-level unrest continues at Shishaldin volcano. A robust steam plume was observed in several satellite images yesterday afternoon, extending towards the north for about 50 miles (80 km) at an altitude of 10,000 ft (3 km) asl. This may be due to favorable atmospheric conditions rather than an increase in degassing. Earthquakes continue to be observed, but at decreased levels relative to the past few weeks. Web camera observations were obscured by clouds.
