Augustine volcano, Alaska: eruption update
Friday Jan 13, 2006 11:39 AM | BY: TOM PFEIFFER
Augustine volcano has calmed down a bit, and the USGS lowered the alert level from RED to ORANGE. Seismic activity has declined since yesterday’s eruption but remains elevated above background and the volcano continues to steam vigorously. AVO reports steam and minor ash emissions from a new vent on the 1986 lava dome, producing a plume reaching an estimated height of 8000 to 10,000 ft (2400 to 3050 m) above sea level. Field observataions confirmed mudflows (also visible in the on-island web camera) on the flanks of the volcano. These flows are the likely source of false reports of new lava flows on the volcano.
