Aleutian Islands volcano erupts, sending ash cloud over Bering Sea

A short eruption of a volcano in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands sent an ash cloud soaring into the sky Thursday near a lightly populated area.

Shishaldin Volcano erupted for about three minutes at 7:10 a.m., the Alaska Volcano Observatory announced. It produced an ash cloud that reached up to 25,000 feet.

The village of False Pass, with a population of 39, is on the eastern shore of Unimak Island about 22 miles east of Shishaldin’s summit.

The village was not affected because winds of 52 mph pushed the ash cloud northwest into the Bering Sea.
