Alaska's Location On The Pacific "Rim Of Fire" Becomes Obvious As 3 Volcanoes, All In A Row, Spring To Life 

Friday, August 6th, 2021: 

Three volcanoes along the Aleutian chain have burst into life this August, spewing steam and ash. One is even flowing lava. 

The Pavlov Volcano is closest to the Alaska Peninsula, near Cold Bay. The Alaska Volcano Observatory says it looks like Pavlov is about to erupt, as ash clouds rise. Mt Pavlov is around 600 miles from Anchorage, and erupted the last time in 2016. 

The second volcano is farther down the chain, on Adak Island, and local people in Adak can see the lava flowing from the mountain. It's called Great Sitkin. 

A third volcano, Semisopochnoi Volcano, is close to Russia, and it's erupting and sending up ash clouds too, today.

 A Burning Rim Of Fire

The Pacific Rim Of Fire is a volcano and earthquake belt that sweeps along all the coasts of the countries that touch the Pacific Ocean. The volcanoes define the coastlines of South America, Mexico, California, Alaska, Russia, Japan, and many Pacific Islands, including Hawaii. 

Volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis are all dangerous, all interconnected, and all a part of Alaskan and Pacific life.
