Minor lava flows detected on 2 restless volcanoes in Alaska

Scientists say small lava flows have been detected on two restless volcanoes in Alaska.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory says satellite images Tuesday show the lava partly down a flank of Pavlof Volcano in a low-level eruption 625 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Geophysicist Dave Schneider says minor steam and ash emissions are visible from the community of Cold Bay 37 miles away.

Pavlof is the second Alaska volcano to erupt this month.

Cleveland Volcano, on an uninhabited island in the Aleutian Islands, experienced a low-level eruption in early May. The observatory says analysis of satellite imagery shows a lava flow partly down a flank of the volcano.

Ash plumes can be an aviation hazard, but no ash clouds have been detected from Cleveland Volcano in the past week.
