unconfirmed 2004 eruption
There were reports of 2 explosions on 24 February 2004, but these could not confirmed and are not believed to be true (Smithsonian / GVP)

2002-03 explosive & effusive eruption
An eruption began at Pago volcano on 3 August 2002, after several months of reports of vegetation dying off at the summit. The eruption opened several vents on a new fissure extending NW from the summit. In the first days, large explosions produced tall ash plumes up to 10 km high, and caused severe problems due to ash fall.
In the following effusive phase, several lava flows were erupted. The eruption declined, but went on for more than a year until it ended sometime in October 2003.
