Augustine Volcano's eruption at 6:48 a.m. marked the fourth straight day of eruptions and generated an ash plume reaching almost five miles into the skies above Cook Inlet.

The ash was moving east and southeast at 10 to 15 mph and a sparse dusting was expected to fall on the Kenai Peninsula, the National Weather Service said. There were no reports of ash in skies near Anchorage, about 180 miles northeast of the volcano.
