Officials have been forced to raise the volcano and aviation alert levels after the Pavlof Volcano ash spewed 30,000 feet into the air. The volcano on Alaska’s Aleutian Islands erupted with such strength “high-level” tremors could be felt hundreds of miles away.

There is also a risk small avalanches of hot rock could possibly cause mudslides, Alaska Volcano Observatory geophysicist David Schneider said.

The volcano alert level is now on “warning” and the aviation level is “red” – both their respective highest threat levels. The current cloud is 125 miles from the volcano itself.

The volcano is situated along key international routes that connect Asia, Europe and North America and its eruption could cause travel chaos if the ash cloud worsens.

Mr Schneider said the volcano’s eruption could last weeks and sometimes even months with different levels of intensity. Pavlof is well-known as one of the most active volcanoes in North America, with more than 40 previous eruptions.
