AVO has lowered the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level to YELLOW/ADVISORY due to satellite observations and a lack of tremor lately indicating that eruptive activity has stopped. Elevated seismicity continues.
Wednesday, Oct 03, 2018
On September 16, AVO raised the volcano to Aviation Color Code YELLOW and Volcanic Alert Level ADVISORY due to increased seismicity. The following day, activity increased further, with bursts of tremor; AVO raised the Aviation Color Code to ORANGE and Volcanic Alert Level to WATCH. Subsequent satellite imagery showed ash deposits and a new tephra cone on the northern cone of Mount Cerberus, one of the cones of the volcanic system. No significant emissions have been detected.

Semisopochnoi, the largest subaerial volcano of the western Aleutians, is 20 km wide at sea level and contains an 8-km-wide caldera. It formed as a result of collapse of a low-angle, dominantly basaltic volcano following the eruption of a large volume of dacitic pumice. The high point of the island is 1221-m-high Anvil Peak, a double-peaked late-Pleistocene cone that forms much of the island's northern part. The three-peaked 774-m-high Mount Cerberus volcano was constructed during the Holocene within the caldera. Each of the peaks contains a summit crater; lava flows on the northern flank of Cerberus appear younger than those on the southern side. Other post-caldera volcanoes include the symmetrical 855-m-high Sugarloaf Peak SSE of the caldera and Lakeshore Cone, a small cinder cone at the edge of Fenner Lake in the NE part of the caldera. Most documented historical eruptions have originated from Cerberus, although Coats (1950) considered that both Sugarloaf and Lakeshore Cone within the caldera could have been active during historical time.
