Volcanoes Today, 31 Oct 2014: Shishaldin volcano
Friday Oct 31, 2014 16:00 PM |Shishaldin (United States, Aleutian Islands): Eruptive activity at the volcano continues. Most of the time, it seems to be weak, probably strombolian in nature, but there have been episodes with more intense activity, possibly lava fountaining, evidenced by strong tremor and elevated surface temperatures.
Such an episode occurred during 25-28 Oct. Elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite images beginning on October 25, and early that evening seismic tremor began to be recorded on nearby seismic stations, accompanied by stronger thermal anomalies.
New deposits of ash and ballistics darkened the summit area, indicating the activity was energetic enough to eject material from a depth of several hundred meters (~600 ft / 200 m) within the summit crater. The activity was recorded on infrasound arrays located in Akutan, 90 mi (145 km) to the southwest, and Dillingham, 363 mi (585 km) to the northeast. (AVO)

Kilauea (Hawai'i): According to the latest report, the lava flow front is now 280 m/yds from Pahoa Village Road, averaging about 10 m/yds per hour. Lava has already consumed a few small agricultural structures, and there are perhaps 10-15 residences in its direct path on both sides of the road. Residents have been placed on an "evacuation notice" without being forced to leave, so that they can see what happens to their property and hopefully bring some emotional closure to the ordeal. ...
