We finally have information on the situation on the ground, with permission of a ship that passed in the area during the big outbreak on Sunday. As expected, there is a lot of damage!

Meanwhile, the mines continue to spread across the Aleutian islands. Updates continue to be released by Anchorage VAAC. The aviation color code has been lowered to Yellow.
