New Explosions At Bogoslof Volcano, Aleutian Islands, Alaska

Another explosive eruption occurred yesterday evening at the volcano (at 14:16 AKDT local time or 22:16 UTC). It lasted about 50 minutes produced an ash cloud that rose to at least 35,000 ft, and possibly as high as 45,000 ft asl, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported: 
 
“An observer on Unalaska Island reported seeing a large white-gray mushroom cloud form over Bogoslof, with ash fall out to the west. Winds in the area are currently to the northwest. 
 
Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude volcanic clouds could occur at any time. Low-level explosive activity that is below our ability to detect in our data sources may be occurring.” (AVO)
