Elevated levels of seismic tremor persist at the intracaldera cone of Veniaminof Volcano and low-level, largely effusive, eruptive activity continues. Elevated surface temperatures at the cone were observed in satellite data over the past 24 hours, and clear views from the FAA web camera in Perryville this morning showed minor ash emissions to about 12,000 feet above sea level and a diffuse ash plume extending just beyond the caldera rim drifting west and then south-southeast. AVO has received no additional information from observers or pilots about the ongoing eruption.
