Friday Jul 05, 2013 15:05 PM | BY: T
The lava dome continues to grow and produce hot avalanches on the western and eastern volcanic flanks. KVERT reports moderate seismicity
Monday, Jul 01, 2013
KVERT reports no changes in activity: moderate seismic activity of the volcano suggests that the growth of an extrusion at the volcano summit continues. Incandescence of the volcano summit, hot avalanches on the western and eastern volcanic flanks, and strong and moderate gas-steam activity accompany this process. (KVERT)
Tuesday, Jun 25, 2013
The lava dome remained active and produced hot avalanches on the western and eastern volcanic flanks. Moderate seismic activity and strong and moderate gas-steam activity accompany this process. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano. (KVERT)
Monday, Jun 10, 2013
The lava dome remains active and continues to grow slowly. KVERT reports incandescence of the volcano summit, hot avalanches on the western and eastern volcanic flanks, and strong and moderate gas-steam activity, associated with medium levels of seismicity.
