Mount Veniaminof, the glacier covered volcano on the Alaska Peninsula, has been erupting since early September. The Alaska Volcano Observatory reports that lava is still flowing from the caldera this week. The volcano last erupted in 2013.

Veniaminof sent a plume of ash, 13,000′ into the air in late November, but that action has come to a stop, at least for now.

Currently joining Veniaminof on AVO’s Orange Alert List, is the seemingly always active Mount Cleveland.
