|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Two short duration eruption pulses were detected in seismic data. The first began at 18:15 UTC (10:15 AKDT) that lasted about 9 minutes, followed by a shorter pulse at 18:29 UTC (10:29 AKDT). The cloud has been observed in satellite data at an estimated height of 30,000 ft asl. The Aviation Color Code is being increased to Red and the Alert Level to Warning.
Seismic data has decreased following these two eruption pulses, but additional explosive activity is possible. Winds are towards the north over the Bering sea, and ashfall on populated islands is not likely. The National Weather Service has issued an eruption SIGMET warning for aviation with an eruption cloud height of 30,000 ft. This may be revised as new satellite data becomes available. See http://www.weather.gov/aawu/sigmets for the most current information.
