|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||An explosive eruption started at about 01:10 UTC 12/22 (16:10 AKST today) as seen in satellite and seismic data from neighboring islands and appeared to last for about 30 minutes. Cloud-top temperatures and wind direction suggest the cloud is as high as 35,000 ft asl, and is moving to the north. On the basis of this information, the Aviation Color Code is raised to RED and the Alert Level to WARNING.
AVO has no ground-based volcano monitoring equipment on Bogoslof volcano and is unable to provide a forecast of future eruptive activity. We will monitor satellite images and data from distant seismic and infrasound instruments for indications of significant explosive activity.
