Intense action at the Pavlof volcano in #Alaska prompts regional airline to cancel flights |

Airline PenAir said cancellations continued through Wednesday as the it continued monitoring activity hourly.

Pavlof is located in an uninhabited region, nearly 966km southwest of Anchorage.

The volcano lies below a route frequently used by jetliners flying between North America and Asia, but those planes
generally fly at elevations of 9,144 meters and would likely be unaffected by ash at lower elevations, the Alaska Volcano Observatory said.

According to geologist Game McGimsey, diffused ash from Pavlof continues to reach heights as high as 7,315 metres.

"The eruptive activity continues pretty strong," McGimsey said. "There is lava fountaining going on. It's very visible at night time from web cams."
