|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Seismic activity at Semisopochnoi has increased in recent days with a marked increase in the past 8 hours. Increased activity has also been detected on local infrasound stations, suggesting possible low-level (below 10,000 ft above sea level) emissions. Due to this increase in activity, AVO is raising the Aviation Color Code to ORANGE and the Alert Level to WATCH.
When occurring, small eruptions producing minor ash deposits within the vicinity of the active north crater of Mount Cerberus and ash clouds under 10,000 ft above sea level are typical of activity at Semisopochnoi.

|(13) Other volcanic cloud information:||none|
|(14) Remarks:||Semisopochnoi is monitored by a local seismic and infrasound network, local web cameras, regional lightning and infrasound sensors, and satellite data.|
