Veniaminof volcano (Alaska): lava flow and increasing tremor

MODIS hot spot data for Veniaminof volcano showing the area of fresh lava flows (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
The eruption continues. A lava flow is being erupted from the central intra-caldera cone, recent satellite images suggest as they show very high elevated surface temperatures in this area. Since about 10 hours ago, a seismic swarm and continuous tremor have appeared indicating probably an increase in this activity.
