At Shishaldin, the eruption continues; the lava overflows the crater and feeds a flow on the north-west flank in elongation. This one developed in two branches on November 3rd (doubling already visible on the image of 01.11.2019 - article of yesterday), each of them extending on approximately 1.000 meters.
Debris flows / lahars also extended, extending up to 2 km on the north and south flanks;
Sporadic glow is observable at night on webcams, and satellites show hot spatter deposits on the summit cone in relation to explosive activity and / or fountaining.
Small explosions are observed on the seismic and infrasonic networks.
The volcanic alert remains at Watch and the aviation code at orange
