Observers in Perryvill report low level steam and ash emission from Veniaminof today. Snow on the upper south flank in gray, indicating a light ash cover. Satellite imagery recorded a hot spot at the volcano on August 10.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife staff onboard a research vessel in late July reported seeing a blocky lava flow that was entering the sea on the northwest flank. The flow was forming a new headland and small cove. On August 10, the same ship passed within 2 miles of shore and the crew observed for the first time during daylight hours the two lava flows on the northwest flank. Steam was rising from where the flows were entering the sea. A strong odor of SO2 was detected. Satellite imagery recorded hot spots at Kanaga all this week.
COOK INLET VOLCANOES

volcanoes remains at normal levels.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory continues to seismically
monitor Spurr, Augustine, Redoubt and Iliamna volcanoes.
We maintain a computerized alarm system that is capable of
notifying AVO seismologists during non business hours
should unusual seismic activity occur.
