Near the end of the 1986 eruption, during August 19-31, summit lava dome growth was renewed and pyroclastic flows were again produced by collapse of the dome. This August 28 photo shows a pyroclastic flow descending the north flank of Augustine out of a cloud bank that obscures the summit. These pyroclastic flows were smaller than those earlier in the 1986 eruption, which had reached the north coast of the island.
