AVO has lowered the alert level to yellow, as it appears that no new eruptive activity has occurred during the past days. The eruption is not considered over yet, but might be simply pausing and could resume any time (such as the volcano did before).

Seismicity remains elevated and hot spots remain visible in the caldera on MODIS data. The seismic activity has been gradually declining over the past several days, and no clear views could be obtained from webcam images to see if lava effusion continues.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory recently lowered the alert status from Orange/Watch to Yellow/Advisory. Although some weak tremor continues to be recorded under the caldera, no more eruptive activity seems to have taken place during the past weeks. The lava flows and the new cinder cone that was built inside the caldera are now cooling.

The eruption seems to be ending. AVO reports that "seismic tremor continues though at decreased levels compared to prior weeks. No unusual activity was observed in webcam images. These data indicate that the effusion of lava from the active vent may be ongoing though diminished."
