ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Authorities at the Alaska Volcano Observatory say elevated surface temperatures suggest the Pavlof Volcano is having a low-level eruption with lava at the surface.

They said Saturday that satellite imagery shows a steam plume and a pilot reported a gas and ash plume drifting north about 8,000 feet above sea level.

The 8,262-foot volcano is one of the state’s most active volcanoes. It is located about 625 miles southwest of Anchorage.
