The Veniaminof Volcano is Downgraded

Game McGimsey

The seismic activity at the Veniaminof Volcano on the Alaska Peninsula has decreased over the past week resulting in lowering the volcano alert level. The Alaska Volcano Observatory confirms that satellite observations show no evidence of eruptive activity. The Volcano Alert Level has been downgraded from Watch to Advisory. AVO notes that it’s possible this is only a temporary pause of activity in the eruption that began in June, and that more vigorous activity could resume. The Veniaminof Volcano is located on the Alaska Peninsula and it’s one of the largest and most active volcanos in Alaska. You can follow the activity at all of Alaska’s volcanos on the website of the Alaska Volcano Observatory at www.avo.alaska.edu.
