Another large explosive eruption is occurring at the volcano this evening.
After a pause of about 4 days, seismic activity rapidly picked up this afternoon and a new eruptive phase began at 18:55 UTC (09:55 AKST local time), the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported a short time ago.
Preliminary satellite data show an ash cloud, and also detected a large number of lightnings west of the volcano (lightnings typically occur within large ash plumes during explosive eruptions).
The Aviation Color Code was raised again to RED and Bogoslof volcano's Alert level to WARNING.

Nearly all of this new material consists of unconsolidated pyroclastic fall and flow (surge) deposits that are highly susceptible to wave erosion and thus additional changes in the configuration of the island are likely.
