Eruption of Volcano Causes Flight Disruptions in Alaska

According to the Alaska Volcano Observatory, Pavlof Volcano in Alaska erupted during the weekend, releasing a plume of ash up to 22,000 feet high.  The U.S. Geological Survey reported that there were continued tremors on Monday, despite the fact that clouds made it impossible to get a visual on the volcano.  Geologist Chris Waythomas said that in terms of seismic activity, the volcano has been fairly steady over the last 12 hours.

The ash cloud did not rise high enough to cause problems for international air traffic, but it has reached heights that would interfere with the flights of smaller planes.  Regional carrier Penair, which is based in Anchorage, had to cancel a dozen passenger and cargo flights that were scheduled to fly to several remote communities on Sunday, including the community of Sand Point, which reported minor ash fall in the area.
