It's a "red" aviation warning

"Alaska's Bogoslof volcano erupted again Monday morning, sending an ash cloud about 6 miles into the sky.
The "significant explosive eruption" started around 10 a.m. on the remote island in the Bering Sea, northwest of Unalaska Island, and continued for about three hours, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.
In response, the observatory issued a "red" aviation warning, the highest level.
Since mid-December, the restless Bogoslof has erupted about 60 times, according to Hans Schwaiger, a geophysicist at the observatory.
"On average, it's once or twice a week," he said.
"But it's been a couple of weeks since the last eruption."
Like the earlier eruptions, the one on Monday came with "very little to no warning," said Michelle Coombs, the observatory's scientist-in-charge."
