AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION

ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Saturday, September 7, 2013, 11:23 AM AKDT (Saturday, September 7, 2013, 19:23 UTC)


VENIAMINOF VOLCANO (VNUM #312070)
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, elevated surface temperatures in satellite views, and clear weather views from the FAA Perryville webcam. Effusion and fountaining of lava from the active vent is ongoing as is low level ash emissions that are, at this time, restricted to an area within a few miles of the vent. This morning, the plume is visible in the web cam and is more steam-rich than in recent days, perhaps indicating that lava is flowing in a new direction down the cone and is melting the surrounding ice.

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).



CLEVELAND VOLCANO (VNUM #311240)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Nothing was observed in mostly cloudy web cam and satellite views over the past 24 hours. AVO has received no other reports of activity at the volcano.
