According to Kienle and Forbes (1977) a mission report on May 27, 1885 stated: "earthquakes still quite frequent here (Kenai?) and Chernabura is still smoking." Becker (1898) says the volcano was steaming from shore to summit.
Waitt and Beget (2009) believe that this account describes rain or snowmelt infiltrating still-hot 1883 pyroclastic-flow deposits.
