|Eruption Type:||Not an eruption.|
From Siebert and Simkin (2002-, accessed March 23, 2007): "A 1953 explosive "eruption" was single large puff of steam followed by steaming from caverns in Hook Glacier (Muller and others, 1954)."
Muller and others (1954) reads: "Kukak Volcano, which had been steaming steadily, emitted a single large puff of steam on July 22 according to the captain of the Fish and Wildlife Service's ship Dennis Wynn. At the end of July considerable steam was escaping from large caverns in Hook Glacier on the flank of Kukak Volcano, possibly indicating the position of newly activated vents."
