ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- One of Alaska's most active volcanoes continued vigorously erupting into its second week, with larger explosive eruptions still expected, officials said Thursday.
"Earthquake activity remains steady and well above normal" at Pavlof Volcano on the Aleutian arc, and vigorous lava flow is continuing, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory.
Volcano seismologist Steve McNutt said the volcano, located about 600 miles southwest of Anchorage, could be building toward a major, more explosive eruption.
"We've had quite a few explosions over the past few days," McNutt said.
He said technical issues are still being worked out with a Webcam that was installed at the volcano over the weekend, but that it will hopefully be running soon.
Currently, images are coming from Cold Bay, 37 miles away, he said.
"I'm sad to say people are going to find out that weather in that part of the world is pretty nasty most days," he said.
