|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Lightning and seismicity increase indicate an explosive eruption began at 06:50 AKST (15:50 UTC). A larger burst of seismicity occurred at 07:06 AKST (16:06 UTC). We do not yet have information on volcanic cloud height, but comparison to seismicity from previous events suggests that this event may be similarly energetic. We are thus raising the color code to RED and alert level to WARNING. We are still evaluating data and will provide an update as necessary.
Lower level winds (below 10,000 ft asl) are currently to the southeast and to the northeast at higher altitudes.
