The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported that the activity of the volcano continues at low levels over the past days.
Earthquakes may be associated with unrest but there have been no signs of surficial activity detected or observed in other monitoring data.
It is unclear at this time if increased seismic activity at the volcano could lead to an eruption.
The main hazard from an eruption of Makushin would likely be from airborne ash and ash fall.
