Wednesday, August 10, 2011, 12:48 PM AKDT (Wednesday, August 10, 2011, 20:48 UTC)
52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W,
Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH

Possible thermal anomaly at the summit of Cleveland volcano observed yesterday evening in several satellite images. Effusive eruption of lava dome in summit crater possibly continuing. AVO has received no additional information or observations about unrest at the volcano.
Without a real-time seismic network on the volcano, AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest, provide forecasts of eruptive activity, or confirmation of explosive, ash-producing events. AVO is monitoring the volcano using satellite data as it becomes available.
