The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported that seismicity at the volcano has decreased over the past day, but remains elevated. Strongly elevated surface temperatures have been observed in multiple satellite images over the past 24 hours.
Incandescence was occasionally visible from the summit crater in web camera images overnight.
Analysis of satellite imagery indicate that a partial collapse of the summit cone sometime around 23:30 UTC on November 24th produced a pyroclastic flow that extended up to 3 km from the summit down the northwest flank of the volcano.
Lava flows on the northwest flank remain active, currently about several hundred m long.
No ash plumes have been detected.
