The Alaska volcano observatory (AVO) detected significantly increased earthquake activity under the volcano and warns of a possible eruption:
"Earthquake activity that began in January continues, and has increased in intensity over the past few days. In addition, we have detected brief periods of seismic tremor, which can indicate movement of magma or magmatic gases. Thus we are increasing the aviation color code to YELLOW and the volcano alert level to ADVISORY." (AVO)
