EVENT SPECIFIC INFORMATION

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