After about 1 year of pause, a new eruption started at the volcano on 30 May. Ground observers saw a small lava flow from a vent on the upper NE side of the cone.
"Satellite imagery shows elevated surface temperatures. A low level steam plume is visible in satellite imagery and in the FAA web camera located in Cold Bay. Several pilots reported a gas and ash plume drifting north at 7,000 to 8,000 feet above sea level. Based on these observations AVO raised the Aviation Color Code to ORANGE." (AVO)

The volcano has been quiet during the past 24 hours, but it is unclear whether this is already an end or only a pause in the eruption, or whether some weak activity is still continuing. AVO reports relatively continuous, but low-level tremor being still present and it is possible that minor emissions of ash, gas and steam and low-level lava fountaining are still occurring intermittently. ... read all

Eruptive activity is continuing, but at a much lower level than earlier this week. The level of seismicity over the past 24 hours has continued to decline and now consists primarily of low level continuous tremor. Periods of continuous tremor are likely associated with lava fountaining and minor ash production, but at this level, emission rates are probably very low. read all

The eruption had increased yesterday and produced ash plumes rising up to about 8.5 km (28,000 ft), but has decreased in strength again today. ... read all
