Airplanes are being warned to avoid airspace near an erupting Alaska volcano as it spews ash 30,000 feet (9,000 meters) above sea level.

The National Weather Service said Saturday that ash is being blown to the west and northwest of Pavlof Volcano.

Pavlof began erupting three days ago, pushing lava out from a vent near its summit. On Friday, the ash cloud reached 16,000 feet (4,8008 meters).

Alaska Volcano Observatory Geophysicist Dave Schneider says the eruption intensified at 6 am Saturday, sending the ash cloud higher.

Schneider says it’s not clear how long the eruption will last. He says Pavlof’s eruptions may last for weeks or months with varying levels of intensity.

Pavlof is Alaska’s most active volcano. It sits along international air routes connecting Europe, North America and Asia.

    The dams of the world together exerted a water pressurehead surge of 261 million km at the center of gravity of the world’s reservoirsat 25.478,107.7279. This resulted in a water moment surge at the Pavlof Volcanowith a power impulse surge of 1.1 million terawatts and it erupted spewing ash30000 feet high into the skies forcing authorities to warn aircraft to keep offthe volcano. What a mess modern civilization is creating while meeting waterconsumption demands with designs displaying a glaring lacuna. Dams can onlytake care of sudden water pressures by having a surge shaft. But huge systemdynamics are ignored because of the false foundation on which moderncivilization is built upon. Seeing the separate dams, they consider these donot collectively create disaster to modern civilization by the instantaneoussum total of their actions! Whereas a normal civilization built on the bedrockof truth bans dams! There is true knowledge: To see one changeless life in allthe lives, in the separate the one Inseparable. Rigid interconnected dynamicsis recognized as the truth in the designs of normal civilization, that designgoes by the name of the tree which is infinitely superior to surface waterstorage designs.
