Another major explosive eruption has taken place at the volcano a short time ago.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory noticed an increase in seismic activity from around 13:00 AKST local time (22:00 UTC). Two hours later, pilots confirmed that an explosive eruption produced a plume that rose to at least flight level 310 (31,000 ft or 9.5 km altitude) and has been drifting northeast.
The Aviation Color Code was again raised to RED and the Alert Level of the volcano to WARNING.
