NBC reported that three volcanoes have been erupting at the same time on an Alaskan island chain for over a week.

Two volcanoes are located along the 800-mile Aleutian island chain and spew low levels of steam and ash.

Other volcanoes like Pavlof, Great Sitkin and Semisopochnoi Volcano are also under orange threat levels, which indicates that eruptions may be underway.

Because of their remote location, eruptions don't currently pose any threat to nearby communities. NBC reported that they have not disrupted air travel.

This area is also known as "The Ring of Fire" and is home to many volcanic eruptions. It's located at the Pacific Ocean's rim, where many of the world’s earthquakes and volcanic eruptions take place.

Matthew Loewen (a research geologist at the Alaska Volcano Observatory) stated to NBC News that Alaska has many volcanoes. "On average, we see one eruption per year in Alaska," he said. It is rare to have three eruptions at once, but it happens.

Scientists are still closely monitoring the volcanoes to see if there are any signs of change.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported that a 6.9 earthquake occurred off the Alaskan Peninsula's coast on Saturday morning.

No tsunami warnings were issued despite the magnitude of the earthquake.
