56°11'44" N159°23'18" W, Summit Elevation 8225 ft (2507 m)
Current Level of Concern Color Code: YELLOW
Windy conditions obscure the weak seismicity that has been seen in recent weeks. Webcam and satellite views were cloudy.
Intermittent, short-lived, very small-volume steam and ash bursts from the intracaldera cone have been common over the past few years. Ash from these events is not likely to extend beyond the caldera rim. There are no indications that a larger eruption is imminent.
