Pavlov volcano (Alaska), activity update: continuing lava dome growth
Friday Sep 14, 2007 08:45 AM |

Pavlov's eruption continues and it seems increasing. A strong eruption took place yesterday: at approximately 9:30 pm local time (AKDT) on August 31, National Weather Service observers in Cold Bay reported a substantial plume and associated lightning emanating from Pavlof Volcano reaching approximately 20,000 ft (6,000 m) above sea level.
If activity continues to increase in intensity, larger ash clouds that could affect higher-flying aircraft may be produced. The most immediate ground hazard in the vicinity of the volcano includes light ash fall on nearby communities.[more]
