Visible lava from Shishaldin volcano (image: Sentinel 2)
Alaska Volcano Observatory reported that seismic tremor at Shishaldin has increased over the past day. Satellite and web camera observations were partly obscured by clouds over the past day but elevated surface temperatures in the summit crater were observed in several clear views. These observations are consistent with elevated unrest, but active lava effusion is less likely to be occurring. ... read all

Lava branches on the northwest flank (image: Sentinel 2)
AVO reported that lava is overflowing the summit crater and the lava flow on the northwest flank has increased in length. Satellite data on Sunday afternoon show that the flow has developed two branches, each extending for about 1000 meters (0.62 miles). Volcanic debris flows (lahars) have also increased in length and now extend as far as 2 km (1.2 miles) on the north and south flanks. ... read all

Lava filled the crater and overflowed the north crater rim (image: Sentinel 2)
Seismicity and infrasound signals were consistent with low level eruptive activity and a steam plume was persistent. ... read all
Thu, 24 Oct 2019, 21:19
Satellite data is now showing that the deep summit crater has been filled and lava is starting to flow over the rim with spatter from Strombolian explosions also being deposited. This melted some of the thick ice sending a lahar halfway down the north flank. Elevated seismicity continues. read all
