"Pavlof Volcano has returned to its normal background state following a short eruptive period in mid May. Minor ash emissions were last observed on May 16, and since then the volcano has gradually returned to a quiescent status and now shows no signs of unrest.
Seismic activity has returned to background levels and nothing unusual has been observed in satellite and web camera data since mid May. Consequently, AVO is lowering the Aviation Color Code to GREEN and the Volcano Alert Level to NORMAL."
