The folks up in Alaska have a lot to watch these days in the Aleutians, with three volcanoes erupting right now. Just a quick update on the current activity:

  • Kasatochi: The eruption that started Thursday and produced 45,000 foot ash columns has quieted by Saturday, but there are still moderate (M=5) earthquakes being recorded near the island (above, before eruption).

  • Okmok: Ash from the month-long eruption is falling on islands near the caldera.

  • Cleveland: Activity at Cleveland has quieted to the point that no ash column was spotted on Saturday.
