Residents of Perryville report steam rising a few hundred meters over the summit caldera of Veniaminof volcano this morning. Earlier in the week, a "hot" spot was detected on an AVHRR image of the volcano. Veniaminof has been the site of a low-level eruption since July, 1993; steam clouds generated by the interaction of lava with ice and snow and occasional low-energy ash bursts may continue for some time.
On June 3-4, USFWS personnel aboard the RV TIGLAX observed steaming from the summit area of Kanaga volcano. The crew also reported steaming from 1994 avalanche deposits on the northwest flank of the volcano. The most recent eruption of Kanaga volcano ended in late 1994; continuing steam emission from the gradually cooling deposits can be expected.
