I have reported on a few volcanoes waking up around the world this past week including Guatemala, Indonesia, Italy and a couple looming in Iceland. Now a volcano has awakened in Alaska. The prophet Joel warned they were coming in the end times (Joel 2:30-31).
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A small explosion was recorded Thursday at a remote volcano on the Alaska Peninsula, prompting officials to raise the alert level.
Satellite and webcam views indicated low-level ash emissions from Mount Veniaminof volcano. The ash plume did not rise above 10,000 feet (3048 meters), the Alaska Volcano Observatory said. Minor ash deposits are visible at the volcano, located 480 miles (772 kilometers) southwest of Anchorage.
Officials said eruptive activity typically includes minor ash, lava fountaining and lava flows from the small cone in the ice-filled summit caldera. Ashfall is usually confined to the summit crater but larger explosions can send ash to nearby communities, as happened in a 2018 eruption.
