The eruption continues at Veniaminof, characterized by minor spattering and effusion of lava from the intracratal cone, confirmed by satellite temperature measurements.
Diffuse ash emissions have been observed on the webcam in previous days ... and traces of ash fall are possible on the surrounding communities depending on the wind conditions.
The aviation code remains orange, and the volcanic alert to Watch.
