Bogoslof volcano news & activity updates:

Bogoslof volcano (Aleutian Islands): increased earthquake activity, alert level raised

Seismic signal from Bogoslof volcano, MSW station (on Makushin 60 km to the east from Bogoslof)
Seismic signal from Bogoslof volcano, MSW station (on Makushin 60 km to the east from Bogoslof)
The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) detected an increase in earthquake activity at the volcano since 15 April around 15:01 AKST / 23:01 UTC. Although no evidence of new eruptive activity has been found so far, the alert level of the volcano was raised again.

"At this time there has been no evidence of renewed eruptive activity from infrasound, lightning, or satellite data. Similar sequences of earthquakes have preceded some of the explosive events during the ongoing unrest.
Because this uptick in seismicity increases the likelihood of future explosive activity, AVO is raising the Aviation Color Code for Bogoslof to ORANGE and the Volcano Alert Level to WATCH." (AVO)
