Description: Shishaldin Volcano experienced some seismic unrest and a possible steam plume during 2001. McGimsey and others (2004) report: "AVO detected that seismic activity began increasing at Shishaldin Volcano in early June, 2001 and continued through about the end of November, 2001. On April 26, 2001, a pilot reported a steam cloud rising to about 2,000 ft. (~600 m) above the summit. Although the Color Code status of the volcano was never raised above 'GREEN', and the restlessness was not reported in any of our weekly updates, AVO seismologists and remote sensing specialists maintained a close watch on the activity."
