Kanaga reported activity





Event Name : Kanaga 1933

Start: 1933 Observed

Eruption re-assigned to another volcano: BibCard
Eruption Type:Not an eruption.

Description: Coats (1950) specified that Kanaga was "active; type of activity unspecified" in 1933. However, newspaper articles from that time period specify that "Great Sitkin volcano" on "Kanaga Island" was in eruption at this time. A few articles are more clear, stating that "reports from Kanaga Island" state that Great Sitkin was in eruption. It seems likely that reports of Kanaga erupting in 1933 are erroneous.
