Pavlof volcano erupts on Aleutian chain southwest of Kodiak

The Pavlof Volcano near Cold Bay on the Alaska Peninsula is erupting. Pilots confirmed black ash on the summit indicating a small-scale eruption. The Alaska Volcano Observatory upgraded its status to code Orange this morning from yesterday’s code yellow. Pavlov has a long and interesting history of volcanic activity.
