Remote Alaska volcano erupting again in a short explosion

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – An active Alaskan volcano, has erupted again, this time sending a cloud of ash and ice 35,000 feet in the air.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said that the explosion of the Bogoslof Volcano in the Aleutian Islands occurred on Thursday and lasted for about five minutes.

Observatory geophysicist Dave Schneider says that there are already more than 10 eruptions since mid-December.

Thursday’s eruption prompted the observatory to issue its highest warning for aircraft. But the Federal Aviation Administration says that the volcano has no immediate effect on the flight.

The volcano is located about 850 miles southwest of Anchorage.
