Unrest continues at Bogoslof volcano, but scientists say they’ve fine-tuned monitoring the activity from afar. The Eastern Aleutian volcano had a short lived, but powerful eruption Tuesday night.
David Schneider is a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey. He says this eruption isn’t much different from the others dating back to mid-December.
“It just indicates that the volcano continues to be in a heightened state of unrest," Schneider said. "It’s pretty unpredictable at this point.”
The five-minute explosion threw ash more than 30,000 ft into the air.
