ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT U.S. Geological Survey Monday, July 10, 2017, 9:21 PM AKDT (Tuesday, July 11, 2017, 05:21 UTC)
53°55'38" N 168°2'4" W,
Summit Elevation 492 ft (150 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Following the 15-minute-long explosive eruption that occurred this afternoon July 10 at 17:06 AKDT (1:06 UTC July 11), seismicity as detected on neighboring islands has been quiet and satellite images have shown no significant emissions from the volcano.
Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time. Low-level explosive activity that is below our ability to detect in our data sources may be occurring. These low-level explosions could pose a hazard in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.
The Aviation Color Code remains at ORANGE and the Alert Level remains at WATCH.
