Description: From McGimsey and Wallace (1999): "On Monday afternoon, June 2, 1997, a NWS observer in Cold Bay, 96 km (60 mi) northeast of the volcano, viewed through field glasses a steam and ash plume rising about 1,000-1,500 ft (~300-450 m) above the summit vent and drifting 3-4 mi (5-6 km) to the north. At the time, the volcano was not seismically monitored. This eruptive activity appears to be similar to that documented in 1993 (Neal and others, 1996), and 1994 (Neal and others, 1995)."
