Veniaminof (Alaska Peninsula, USA): The eruption continues. A lava flow is being erupted from the central intra-caldera cone, recent satellite images suggest as they show very high elevated surface temperatures in this area. Since about 10 hours ago, a seismic swarm and continuous tremor have appeared indicating probably an increase in this activity.
No plumes were reported by AVO.
Pavlov (Alaska Peninsula, USA): No changes in activity were reported by the Alaska Volcano Observatory. Seismic activity continues to decrease and no elevated surface temperatures were detected in satellite images during the past 24 hours. No plumes were visible in satellite images, while web camera images show mostly cloudy conditions.
