The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported that during the last 24 hours seismicity at the volcano increased to a level similar to that observed during other eruptive periods over the past few weeks, consistent with the resumption of eruptive activity at the volcano.
This is further supported by strong surface temperatures observed in cloudy satellite images. Webcam images have been mostly obscured by clouds, but a couple of partly clear webcam images yesterday afternoon suggested a lava flow or lahar extending down the southeast flank of the volcano.
No ash plumes have been detected.
