Configuration of Bogoslof Island as of May 18th, 2017 (before the May 28, 2017 explosion). This photo was taken from a flight between Adak and Anchorage. The former lake is now open to the Bering Sea. The eruption on the evening of May 16th (local time) caused a dramatic change to the NW end of the island. The 1926-28 lava dome is now an island, and the 1992 dome remnant is barely connected to the east half of the tuff ring.
