The Picture that surfaced on the Internet is evident that the Volcano has started its eruptive activities and might explode any moment thereafter. The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) states that previously when the ash was originating from the Volcano wasn’t that high in frequency and intensity but now both its intensity and frequency have risen terrifically which might seem potentially dangerous to the lives of the Residents.

The Warning was issued by AVO after brief research and examination of the activity in the Volcano. They spoke that after they have done thorough observations and the intensity of the explosion they have recorded that the concentration of sulfur dioxide gas has increased exponentially which had bound them to change the Aviation Color Code to RED and the Volcano Alert Level to “WARNING LEVEL”. The Positioning of the Volcanic Eruption is more towards East of North America and the United States.
