Scientists at the Alaska Volcano Observatory on Saturday raised the alert level for Pavlof Volcano from "watch" (orange) to "warning" (red) Saturday as an ash cloud rose 25,000 feet above sea level, increasing to 35,000 feet by late Saturday afternoon.

AVO uses the U.S. Geological Survey's color coding system for volcanic alerts. Red indicates "eruption is imminent with significant emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere likely OR eruption is underway or suspected with significant emission of volcanic ash into the atmosphere."
