Akutan reported activity





Event Name : Akutan 1909/9

This is a questionable event.

Start:September 8, 1909 ± 2 MonthsObserved

Lava flow: BibCard
Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: A newspaper account of a possible eruption at Akutan in 1909 is as follows:

From the Nevada State Journal, September 8, 1909: "Captain M. Webber, of the Alaska pack steamer Lehua, which arrived [to San Francisco] today from the Aleutian Islands, reports that when his vessel left the island the volcano Akutan was in violent eruption. Lava was issuing in great volume." The article then continues to state erroneously that this is the first "disturbance" reported since 1887.
