I got a quake in GEE, showed up all stations in Alaska.

USGS listed it as a 4.0, and here is the map, right next to Augustine Volcano:

So then I go to the AVO (Alaska Volcano Observatory) page, and look at the webcam on the island, and I see this, which looks like debris falling:



And I see another, and it looks like it is steaming in the distance:



So I am waiting for more updates on these webcam images here:

www.avo.alaska.edu...

And waiting on any update from the AVO. Not sure what to make of it yet.

If this is a big eruption this could trigger disruptions on travel in Canada and in the Northern U.S. and with 2 volcanoes going off, that could have a HUGE impact on the climate..

So much for AGW,

I hope it's just seismic activity and some fog or something.

There are apparently hundreds of mini-quakes every day at that location. That seems like snow to me in the picture.

Well, I've opened up short period monitoring of a bunch of stations around the volcano, and so far doesn't look like any harmonic tremors or much activity, hmm. Maybe not. I don't know yet. Watching.

Looks like the quake was near the volcano in question:

That's a significant quake to have right under a volcano.

The picture looks like debris to me....pretty big chunks for snow. Hopefully it's just BIG snow.


Off to search for a current weather report.....

Yeah, that doesn't look like snow to me... having been watching the Iceland cams and watching snow alternating with ash/debris falling that pic would fall into the ash/debris... BUT.. I can't believe there's nothing from TPTB about this event - debris/ash would be being reported already, I feel sure of that.. perhaps it was a freak snow/hail storm?

I must say that webcam shot looks mighty similar to ash that i've been in before.

I'd say that we'd have heard somethign by now so perhaps it is snow or dust.. even so.. rumbling volcanoes have me worried. If Auckland starts back up one day, we have about 30 dormant volcanoes in our city! Not to mention the largest recorded eruption down in Taupo, could probably flatten the city too if it went up in a big way again.

Gotta love fresh scoops of paranoia :p

If you look at the other cams and the forcast, it sounds like it is cloudy, rainy and stormy. If visibility is that poor....perhaps they are basically working with the same info that we are, until someone actually gets out there, or it becomes apparant on seismo.

I'm not familiar at all with that area....is that volcano basically it's own island? Or are there inhabitants on that island with it?

Actually - I'm convincing myself it is snow now - considering the ground is covered with it...

Not necessarily. Do you realize how fast this thread went up, once I was led to the volcano by tracking it down in GEE, then seeing the webcams?
I literally could have known about this before the AVO even noticed it!!!

Besides, it's a Saturday night late- there's probably a minimal staff in the office.

Nevermind! The date of the image was WAY off lol.

Professionals, do your thing.

That thought had crossed my mind
particularly when you see stuff on ATS that the MSM or even 'spurts in the know haven't yet reported - so I'm keeping my mind open (as always!).
