ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Sunday, September 8, 2013, 10:59 AM AKDT (Sunday, September 8, 2013, 18:59 UTC)
56°11'52" N 159°23'35" W,
Summit Elevation 8225 ft (2507 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
The eruption of Veniaminof continues, as evidenced by continuous seismic tremor and elevated surface temperatures in satellite views. Effusion and fountaining of lava from the active vent are likely ongoing as is low level ash emissions that are, at this time, restricted to an area within a few miles of the vent. Views of the volcano from the FAA web cam in Perryville have been obscured by clouds over the past 24 hours.
Ash fall from current activity is not expected to be significant and likely will be less than 1/16 inch, although areas within a few miles of the active cone could receive thicker amounts of ash fall. Information about volcanic ash and its potential effects can be found on the AVO web page (www.avo.alaska.edu).
