Wednesday Feb 26, 2014 07:41 AM | BY: T
Two small explosions occurred at the volcano yesterday at ~4:17 UTC February 25 (19:17 AKST February 24) and 10:35 UTC (1:35 AKST), the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported.
The explosions were detected by infrasound and lightning alarms, and satellite data available several hours after these events confirm that small ash clouds were generated by the explosions. The events were brief, and the estimated altitude of the drifting ash clouds was about 5 km (16,000 ft) asl (AVO).

Satellite views since January 2 suggest that no new lava has effused at the summit crater. AVO lowered the Level of Concern Color Code to YELLOW and the Alert Level to ADVISORY. (AVO / USGS) [more]
