More explosions occurred at the volcano this morning. The Alaska Volcano Observatory detected a "series of short, explosive eruptions that started at 17:08 AKST local time (02:08 February 20 UTC) and lasted until 17:45 AKST (02:45 February 20 UTC).
"Satellite images following the activity showed a volcanic plume extending about 100 miles (160 km) to the southeast over Unalaska Island and the Pacific Ocean. The plume was visible in images through 19:00 AKST (04:00 February 20 UTC).
"AVO geologists on Unalaska Island described the cloud has having a white upper portion and a slightly darker lower portion.

"Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time. Low-level explosive activity that is below our ability to detect in our data sources may be occurring. These low-level explosions could pose a hazard in the immediate vicinity of the volcano.

"The Aviation Color Code remains at RED and the Alert Level remains at WARNING." (AVO)
