Veniaminof Volcano Eruption

No further information immediately available.


Published Monday, December 10, 2018

Activity at Veniaminof, a volcano on the Alaskan Peninsula has intensified significantly, spewing ash 15,000 feet into the air, prompting the United States Geological Survey to increase the aviation colour code warning to red, while raising the overall warning level from watch to warning, with some communities warned to brace themselves for the possibility of ash fall.

A statement issued by Alaska Volcano Observatory at 9.08pm AKST said almost "continuous emissions" at Veniaminof had continued for much of today, with a plume measuring just under 15,000ft extending across 250 miles to the southeast until about 2.25AKSY.

It added: "After that, a short eruptive pulse was visible from the Perryville webcam at 1.26AKST but largely dissipated by 17.26 AKST.

"No ash emissions were visible in the last daylight webcam images, and satellite images do not indicate continued emissions at this time.
