The Eruption of the Pavlof Volcano is Over

Aug 8, 2013

The eruptive activity at the Pavlof Volcano on the Alaska Peninsula is over and the Alaska Volcano Observatory has downgraded the volcano alert level to “Normal”. AVO confirms that no lava or ash emissions have been detected since June 26th and seismicity is now at background levels. In a volcanic activity notice issued Thursday afternoon AVO noted that in past eruptions the Pavlof Volcano has resumed activity after pauses as long as 55-days. That has led AVO to stress that they will continue to closely monitor the volcano. The Pavlof Volcano is located on the southwestern end of the Alaska Peninsula.
