Pavlof Volcano

Current Status (Sunday, December 29): -- Pavlof erupted in it's strongest eruption of the current episode in the early morning of December 27th, ending about eleven days of quiet. Starting on December 26th, small bursts of tremor occurred every few minutes. By about midnight tremor was continuous and the intensity of seismicity was increasing steadily. Eruption intensity peaked in the early morning and then slowly dropped back to a level similar to that during the continuous strombolian eruption of November. Seismicity at Pavlof has since returned to low, intereruption, levels. Local observers report that there is no eruption in progress. AVO returned to Color Code YELLOW on Sunday morning.
