Minor lava flows detected on two Alaska volcanoes

Posted: May 14, 2013 - 11:01pm

ANCHORAGE — Scientists say small lava flows have been detected on two restless volcanoes in Alaska.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory says satellite images show the lava partly down a flank of Pavlof Volcano Tuesday in a low-level eruption 625 miles southwest of Anchorage. Geophysicist Dave Schneider says minor steam and ash emissions are visible from the community of Cold Bay 37 miles away.

Pavlof is the second Alaska volcano to erupt this month.

Cleveland Volcano, on an uninhabited island in the Aleutian Islands, experienced a low-level eruption in early May. The observatory says analysis of satellite imagery shows a lava flow partly down a flank of the volcano. No ash clouds have been detected in the past week.

Cleveland is not monitored with seismic instruments.

Ash plumes can be an aviation hazard.
