Ah this probably explains events @ Kasatochi a bit later.
It showed up on the NEIC as a large number of small events.
Looks like it squeezed a magma filled fracture into the volcano.
The footprint diagram should reveal a segment boundary trans comp series & a 2nd set around nearby Kasatochi vol. where the magma went up the high level pipe fracture.
Apparently produced pyro flows, awaiting photos with interest.
have a nice day: Ag
