FAIRBANKS , Alaska (AP) — A volcano on Alaska's Aleutian Island chain that has erupted frequently in the past eight months has sent up another ash cloud, leading an agency to issue a warning to aviation.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory says the Bogoslof volcano erupted at 10:15 a.m. Saturday Alaska time, creating an ash cloud that rose to 5.6 miles (9 kilometers) above sea level.
The agency issued a red, or warning, alert to aviation because of the ash cloud.
Bogoslof has erupted periodically since mid-December.
