Alaska Volcano
(Photo : Reuters) An Alaska volcano erupted following two others, during the record-breaking heat in Alaska history. Strange events are happening in Alaska.

Besides the continual scorching heat wave of 90 degree weather in the northest state in the U.S., three volcanoes in Alaska has erupted in the past 2 months, sending an ash plume that has risen to as high as 28,000 feet.

Two of the Alaska volcanoes, named Pavlof and Veniaminof, are experiencing more vigorous activity that left many geologists puzzled.

Observatory geologist Tina Neal expressed, "For some reason we can’t explain, [Alaska's Pavlof volcano] picked up in intensity and vigor."

The ash plume from the Alaska volcano is high enough to affect plane activity, and they have been diverted around the area to avoid the danger.

PenAir has canceled one flight and has changed the routes of other flights to create a safer environment for the flight passengers circumventing the Alaska volcano.

National Weather Service is reporting that the Alaska volcano eruption could be damaging electric equipment or harming people who have breathing problems. The small town of King Cove 30 miles from the base of the volcano has been covered in ash due to the eruption.

The scorching heat wave that is currently bringing the Alaska residents 96 degrees weather has been caused due to an abnormality created by an arctic jet stream.
