AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, August 13, 2009, 11:19 AM AKDT (Thursday, August 13, 2009, 19:19 UTC)


REDOUBT VOLCANO (VNUM #313030)
60°29'7" N 152°44'38" W, Summit Elevation 10197 ft (3108 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Seismic activity at Redoubt remains low. Views from the Hut web cameras are currently mostly obscured by clouds. Recent partial views of the dome indicate that a continued small plume of water vapor persists from the dome area. The cooling lava dome remains potentially unstable, and could collapse with little or no warning, likely resulting in significant ash production, hot block and ash flows, and flooding in the Drift River valley.

Although the operations center is no longer staffed 24/7, AVO continues to monitor the volcano on a 24/7 basis using an alarm system that alerts on-call staff of potential unrest.


SHISHALDIN VOLCANO (VNUM #311360)
54°45'19" N 163°58'16" W, Summit Elevation 9373 ft (2857 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Weather has been mostly cloudy at the volcano. When clear conditions exist a continued thermal anomaly is seen in satellite imagery at Shishaldin. Seismic, deformation, and gas emission data do not show anything abnormal at the volcano, and there is currently no indication that an eruption will occur. The Shishaldin webcam is operational again, and may show periodic steaming from the summit, which is typical behavior for this volcano. AVO will continue to closely monitor activity at Shishaldin.
