AVO Bogoslof YELLOW/ADVISORY - Unrest continues. No significant activity observed in seismic or satellite data.

22 Apr 17:08 | SciTech

Apr 22, 2017 20:53 - No significant volcanic activity was observed at Bogoslof volcano in seismic, infrasound data or satellite data over the past day. Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Activity may ramp back up with additional explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds with little precursory activity. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for short-term forecasts of imminent significant explosive activity. Although we are able to detect energetic ...read more »

AVO Cleveland YELLOW/ADVISORY - Unrest continues. No significant activity observed in seismic or satellite data.

22 Apr 17:08 | U.S. News

Apr 22, 2017 20:53 - No significant volcanic activity has been detected in satellite, seismic or infrasound data over the past day. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning and satellite data. read more »

AVO Cleveland YELLOW/ADVISORY - Slightly elevated surface temperatures detected.No other significant activity.

22 Apr 15:35 | U.S. News

Apr 21, 2017 19:45 - Slightly elevated surface temperatures were observed at Cleveland Volcano in a satellite view on Tuesday, April 18, consistent with cooling of the lava dome that formed in late January 2017. No significant activity was detected in seismic or infrasound data during the past week. No explosive activity has been detected since a short-lived event that occurred on March 24. Cleveland Volcano remains at Aviation Color Code YELLOW and Alert Level ADVISORY. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect ...read more »

AVO Bogoslof YELLOW/ADVISORY - Short-lived increase in seismicity; no other activity observed.

22 Apr 15:35 | SciTech

Apr 21, 2017 19:45 - An increase in earthquake activity from Bogoslof was detected from stations on nearby islands starting Saturday, April 15 around 15:01 AKST / 23:01 UTC and subsided a few hours later. In response, AVO raised the Aviation Color Code for Bogoslof to ORANGE and the Volcano Alert Level to WATCH. After four days with no observed activity, AVO reduced the Aviation Color Code back to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY. AVO has not detected any subsequent activity in seismic data. No significant activity was observed in infrasound, lightning or satellite data ...read more »

HVO Kilauea ORANGE/WATCH - Eruption continues at summit and East Rift Zone. Flows pose no threat to nearby communities.

22 Apr 15:35 | U.S. News

Apr 22, 2017 18:51 - Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at the summit and at Puʻu ʻŌʻō on the East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow continues to enter the ocean at Kamokuna, where a small lava delta has been growing since late March. Surface flows remain active above the pali near Puʻu ʻŌʻō. These flows pose no threat to nearby communities. At the summit, the lava lake level did not change appreciably since yesterday; it is still about 21 m (70 ft) below the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater this morning. Summit Observations: Tiltmeters at Kīlauea's summit ...read more »

Apr 21, 2017 19:20 - Activity Summary: Mauna Loa Volcano is not erupting. Rates of deformation and seismicity remain above long-term background levels. Observations: Mauna Loa is not erupting. During the past week, small-magnitude earthquakes were recorded primarily beneath the upper west flank of the volcano, with most at depths of 5-13 km (3-8 mi). GPS measurements continue to show deformation related to inflation of a magma reservoir beneath the summit and upper Southwest Rift Zone. No significant changes in volcanic gas emissions were measured. For more information on current ...read more »
