Pavlof volcano (Alaska) activity update: new eruption

A new eruption began at the volcano on 12 Nov afternoon about 3:00 pm AKST (00:00 UTC on 13 November). The eruption comes from a vent at the upper northern flank just below the summit and has been characterized by ash emissions to about 9000 feet (2.7 km), lava fountaining and avalanches of rock debris and ash descending the north flank of the volcano.
Minor ash emissions were visible in the FAA-operated web camera in Cold Bay beginning around 4:50 pm AKST yesterday (1:50 UTC on 13 November). Observations from ground observers in Cold Bay coincided with a subtle but distinct increase in seismic activity, and the appearance of a thermal signal at the summit of Pavlof evident in satellite images at 5:40 pm AKST (02:40 UTC 13 November).
Since these initial reports of activity, seismic activity has continued to increase gradually and the thermal signal at the summit remains evident in satellite data. Cloud cover has obscured the volcano and no new observations on ash emissions are available. However, the level of seismicity suggests that ash emission continues. (AVO)
