Large explosive eruption at Manam volcano sends ash plume to 45,000 ft altitude – Alaskan volcano shaken

January 13, 2013 – PAPUA NEW GUINEA - A large eruption seems to have occurred this morning around 05:30 GMT from Manam volcano north of New Guinea. VAAC Darwin reported an ash plume rising to 45,000 ft (approx. 14 km) altitude. A hot spot is visible on MODIS satellite data. For the moment, no precise other information about the nature of the eruption is available, as the island is remote and most of its population had been relocated after the last major activity in 2004. –Volcano Discovery 
Quake strikes beneath Alaskan volcano: A magnitude 4.6earthquake struck deep beneath the Alaska Peninsula southwest of Cook Inlet early Sunday morning, triggering a tsunami warning that was quickly canceled, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The 3:45 a.m. shaker hit some 80 miles underground just across the inlet from communities along the western Kenai Peninsula. Data from the University of Alaska earthquake center pegged it 55 miles west of Nikiski but only a few miles from Mount Redoubt, an active volcano in Cook Inlet that last erupted in 2009. Despite its depth and distance it was strong enough to rattle dishware and trigger car alarms in South Anchorage, about 115 miles northeast of the epicenter, according to data from the earthquake center. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. –Alaska Dispatch
