Shishaldin Volcano: An active volcano in the Aleutian Islands in Alaska, covered with snow at the top, began to release dust as high as 8 kilometers yesterday, triggering a warning to the pilots.

Dust from the Shishaldin Volcano, 1,080 kilometers southwest of Anchorage, was part of a series of explosions, mostly at a low scale that began last July with lava flows from the crater, descending to a peak of 2,869 meters.

The dust eruption can be clearly seen by the pilots and can also be seen through satellite images taken from space.

The Alaska Volcano Monitoring Department reports that the dust was blowing across the ocean about 120 kilometers southeast of the volcano.

Department coordinator David Fee of the University of Alaska at Fairbanks said the incident did not affect any community living in the area.

“It’s a remote volcano,” he said.

The National Weather Service Department in a warning issued said all flights were advised to avoid routes around Shishaldin although pilots had actually avoided passing through the area.

Although yesterday’s dust eruption was still moderate, the situation in Shishaldin Volcano could worsen overnight.

“Shishaldin is still on alert and the next explosion could happen at any time,” the watchdog said in a statement.

The dust eruption lasted for an hour to 90 minutes, said US Department of Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Matt Haney.
