KVERT reported that a thermal anomaly over Sheveluch was identified in satellite images during 10-17 June and explosions, hot avalanches, and lava-dome extrusion continued. A daily thermal anomaly was identified in satellite images. Webcam images recorded explosions on 10 June that sent ash plumes to 6.5 km (21,300 ft) a.s.l.
The ash plumes were visible in satellite images drifting 130 km SE. At 0847 on 20 June (local time) explosions were recorded in webcam images. Ash plumes rose to 7 km (23,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted 10 km E.
The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange (the second highest level on a four-color scale). Dates are based on UTC times; specific events are in local time where noted.
