ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, January 17, 2011, 12:07 PM AKST (Monday, January 17, 2011, 21:07 UTC)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W,
Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
During the past 24 hours, no activity was observed in mostly cloudy to cloudy satellite views of the volcano. AVO has received no reports of activity at the volcano from pilots, mariners, or other observers.
Without a real-time seismic network at Cleveland, AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest. Short-lived explosions with ash clouds that could exceed 20,000 ft above sea level can occur without warning and may go undetected on satellite imagery for hours. Low-level ash emissions at Cleveland occur frequently and do not necessarily mean a larger eruption is imminent. AVO continues to monitor the volcano using satellite imagery.
