Bogoslof volcano in the Aleutian Islands experienced another eruption late Thursday, causing an ash cloud that has once more prompted higher alert levels as a string of eruptions that started last week continued.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory issued a Friday update for Bogoslof, about 60 miles west of Unalaska, in response to an ash-producing eruption that began at 11:45 p.m. Thursday. The volcano's aviation color code was placed at red and its alert level at "warning," AVO's highest status for each.

"Cloud-top temperatures from satellite suggest a cloud height of around 20,000 feet (above sea level)," AVO staff wrote. "Regional winds are from the southwest."

Ya think? Its of a level i've not seen before. Anticipating big ones. But beating that drum daily is kinda pointless. And fear pornish (not a word right? pornish? lel) hence my silence. But people do need to be prepared. Too many pop off with earthquakes to not be worried.

Costa Rica put out an alert today on worldwide escalation of volcanic activity, too. It's posted on here. I've never seen so many at once. The maps are incredible.

Will take a look shortly. Just awoke from my slumber. Almost feels like tension just got released. So it feels all light now. But i realize now that tension could be volcanic in nature?
