Low-level unrest continued at Pagan Volcano throughout the past week. Seismic activity remains above background. A steam and gas plume was visible in web camera and satellite images.
Volcanic gas from Pagan may be noticed downwind of the volcano as a distinctive sulfurous odor. Additional information about volcanic gas and vog can be found on the web at this address: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/hazards/FAQ_SO2-Vog-Ash/main.html
