This June 1912, file photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey shows ash drifts around Katmai village’s then-new Russian Orthodox church after the eruption of Novarupta Volcano in Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska. An unusual alert was issued by volcano scientists Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021, warning that an ash cloud was headed toward Alaska’s Kodiak Island.
