The Alaskan Volcano Observatory (AVO) report that the eruptive activity continues at Shishaldin volcano. Minor explosive activity has subsided over the past 24 hours, but seismicity remains elevated with near-continuous tremor. A small steam plume from the summit was observed over the past 24 hours. For now, eruptive activity looks as if it is confined to the summit area, but activity could increase with little or no warning resulting in lava flows outside of the crater, lahars, and ash emissions.
