Pavlof volcano news & activity updates:

Pavlov volcano (Alaska): alert alert raised because of possible small explosive activity

Sun, 20 Oct 2019, 06:58
06:58 AM | BY: T
The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) recorded small explosion signals from the volcano via its infrasound network located at Sand Point and on the local seismic network yesterday.
"It is unknown if the explosions produced any volcanic ash, but their small size suggests any hazard is currently confined to the area around the volcano's summit. Because these signals are above normal background for Pavlof, the Alaska Volcano Observatory is raising the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Alert Level to ADVISORY." (AVO)
