Andrew Wulfeck (FOX Weather) - Alaska officials raise alert level for volcano after increase in earthquake activity
Wed, February 22, 2023 at 6:47 PM EST
The Alaska Volcano Observatory raised the alert level Wednesday for a multi-domed volcano on the state’s peninsula and warned that the ground’s unrest may be associated with the movement of magma or fluids deep under the surface.

Trident, a stratovolcano, is located deep in the Katmai National Park about 275 miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, and is one of at least 14 other active volcanoes in the park.
