U.S. Geological Survey
Saturday, February 18, 2023, 12:35 PM AKST (Saturday, February 18, 2023, 21:35 UTC)
Low-level seismicity continues at Great Sitkin Volcano over the past day. A minor steam plume was observed in satellite imagery.
Great Sitkin Volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
No unusual activity was observed in seismic or cloudy satellite and web camera data over the past day. Steaming from the north crater of Mount Young was observed in clear web camera views.
Small eruptions producing minor ash deposits within the vicinity of the active north crater of Mount Young and ash clouds usually under 10,000 ft (3 km) above sea level have characterized the recent activity. Additional ash-producing events could occur again with little warning.
Semisopochnoi volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, web cameras, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
Seismicity remains elevated with two earthquakes greater than magnitude 2 detected over the past 24 hours. No signs of unrest were seen in cloudy satellite views of the volcano.
Takawangha volcano is monitored by local seismic and infrasound sensors, satellite data, and regional infrasound and lightning networks.
