AVO Pavlof YELLOW/ADVISORY - Steam and gas clouds observed all week.Weakly elevated surface temperatures observed.

5:08 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Jun 23, 2017 20:09 - No unusual activity has been observed in seismic or infrasound data this week. Minor vapor plumes have been observed extending from the summit on several days this week when web camera views were clear. Weakly elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite data on June 16, 20, 21, and 22. Vapor emissions, with or without minor amounts of volcanic ash, are common and may occur from the summit vent at any time. Periods of more vigorous ash emission and lava fountaining also are possible and could occur with only subtle changes in the level of seismic ...read more »

AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - No explosive activity observed this week.

5:08 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Jun 23, 2017 20:09 - No explosive activity was detected at Cleveland Volcano this week. Weakly elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite images on June 19-23, and occasional clear views of the summit by web camera showed only light steaming. No activity has been observed in seismic or infrasound data. 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, ...read more »

AVO Bogoslof ORANGE/WATCH - Unrest continues. No explosive eruptions this week.

5:08 pm Eastern | SciTech

Jun 23, 2017 20:09 - Volcanic unrest at Bogoslof continues. Slightly elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite data this morning and steam emissions have been observed intermittently during the past week. There has been no further explosive activity since the event on June 13, but it is likely that the volcano remains in a restless condition. Volcanic explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds with little or no warning remain possible. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for short-term ...read more »

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

3:40 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Jun 23, 2017 19:00 - Activity Summary: No significant change. Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at the summit and at Puʻuʻōʻō vent on the East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow from Puʻuʻōʻō is entering the ocean at Kamokuna. Surface flows are active above the pali, but pose no threat to nearby communities. The summit lava lake level continues to drop in concert with deflationary tilt; the lake surface is approximately 52 m (170 ft.) below the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu this morning. There have been no significant changes in seismicity levels or ground deformation trends across ...read more »

CVO Cascade Range GREEN/NORMAL - All volcanoes are at normal levels.

2:07 pm Eastern | U.S. News

Jun 23, 2017 17:42 - Activity Update: All volcanoes in the Cascade Range of Oregon and Washington are at normal background levels of activity. These include Mount Baker, Glacier Peak, Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, and Mount Adams in Washington State; and Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, Three Sisters, Newberry, and Crater Lake in Oregon. Recent Observations: Monitoring systems show that activity at Cascade Range volcanoes remained at background levels throughout the week. Engineering crews have been in the field this week conducting annual maintenance on monitoring stations near Mount Hood.read more »
