|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||An explosive eruption of Bogoslof volcano began at about 18:00 UTC (10:00 AKDT) based on infrasound and seismic activity following more than an hour of increased seismicity. Satellite data from 18:00 UTC show an eruption cloud rising above the low cloud deck which is at an altitude of about 1500 ft. asl. There is no estimate of the eruption cloud height as of this time. As of yet there is no lightning activity that it typically observed during significant ash emissions. This suggests that the activity is currently at a low level and the Aviation Color Code remains at ORANGE and the Volcano Alert Level remains at WATCH.
AVO is evaluating all data sources and will update this report as more information becomes available.
