Pavlof Volcano spews massive plume of cinders, local air traffic disrupted

 The Pavlof Volcano erupted with new intensity Tuesday, disrupting local flights, and threatening to disrupt commercial flights, Reuters reports. The volcano’s current eruptive phase began in May, but this is the Pavlof Volcano’s most significant eruption yet. Amid rumblings, several eruptions have spewed ash into the air during the current eruptive phase, but for some reason the intensity has increased. Geologists have yet to determine that reason, but it could be a sign of what sort of volcanic activity to expect from the Pavlof Volcano during the rest of its eruptive period.

The eruption occurred overnight Monday and into Tuesday, spewing ash 28,000 feet into the air and disrupting local flights which had to fly around the ash cloud.
