Earthquake activity under Mount Edgecumbe subsides after brief flurry
April 20, 2022
The Alaska Volcano Observatory said that as of last Thursday the number of earthquakes under Mount Edgecumbe was declining.
The earthquake activity is beneath the 3,000-foot high dormant volcano 15 miles west of Sitka on Kruzof Island.
The volcano observatory sent out an information statement a day earlier about the "swarm" of small earthquakes under Mt. Edgecumbe, with an accompanying message that there is no cause for alarm by the public.
"We're getting information out and trying not to alarm people," said David Schneider, a research geophysicist at the Anchorage volcano center.
