Previous news
Friday, Sep 27, 2019
Seismicity at the volcano has decreased over the past few weeks to levels slightly above background. In addition, satellite views of the volcano over the same period show a decrease in surface temperatures at the summit. Eruptive activity appears to have ended or paused. ... [more]
Wednesday, Aug 07, 2019
AVO reported that satellite images of Shishaldin acquired on 28 July showed a small spatter cone with lava flows in the summit crater. During 31 July-6 August continuous weak tremor was recorded by the seismic network and elevated surface temperatures were sometimes visible in satellite images. ... [more]

Wednesday, Jul 24, 2019
Recent unrest (seismic tremor, thermal anomalies) has increased and a new, very minor eruption is underway. AVO field crews observed a small lava lake inside the deep funnel-shaped summit crater, but the activity has been contained within the crater so far. This is similar to the last eruption in 2014-15. The alert level has been raised to ORANGE/WATCH. A more substantial eruption is possible (like that of 1999) but there is no indication of this occurring so far. [more]
Thursday, Feb 08, 2018
The alert level of the volcano was lowered back to green, as there has been declining seismic and infrasound activity over the past month. According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory, "these observations represent a return to normal background activity at Shishaldin." [more]
Saturday, Mar 12, 2016
The alert level was lowered back to normal status. Detectable activity (visible observations and satellite-based data) has been decreasing steadily of the past several months, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported: ... [more]
