Volcano near Atka erupts

Kasatochi volcano near Atka, on the Aleutian chain, erupted this afternoon. Kasatochi is a young volcano with no known historical eruptions, though it is covered in relatively young volcanic debris. The Alaska Volcano Observatory does not have any scientific instruments on the volcano and relies on seismic data from nearby islands.
