Description: From Shackelford (1982): "Akutan's central cone was observed to be in light eruption in July 1980. Observations on 3 July showed no eruptive activity. However, observers noted on 8 July a plume of steam and dark brownish gray ash rising over the volcano's central cone, to perhaps 0.5 -1.0 km above the crater. No glow was visible. Also, the July observations included the discovery of a fresh-looking lava flow of small dimensions that had moved through the breach in the caldera wall on the NW."
