56°11'52" N 159°23'35" W,
Summit Elevation 8225 ft (2507 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Ongoing eruptive activity at the intracaldera cone of Veniaminof Volcano is producing elevated levels of continuous seismic tremor. Elevated surface temperatures have been detected over the past 24 hours in satellite images, consistent with lava effusion and fountaining. A weak ash plume was visible this morning from the FAA webcam in Perryville. The plume was rising several hundred feet above the active cone and drifting east.
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 intracaldera 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).
