From McGimsey and others (2003): "On March 26, 1998, AVO received phone calls from the Trident seafood processing plant in Akutan reporting lighting and a possible steam cloud over the summit of the volcano [Akutan]. At the same time, an increase in high-frequency seismicity was detected. The tremor-like seismic signal was confined to a single station. A strong storm with high winds was passing through the region and AVO ultimately concluded that the seismic signals were weather-related."
