Volcanic Activity Summary: Satellite data over the past week and regional seismic and infrasound data show no evidence of eruptive activity. Thus, AVO is lowering the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY.
Future explosions at Cleveland are likely. They occur without warning and typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours; however, more significant ash emissions are possible.
[Volcanic cloud height] None
[Other volcanic cloud information] n/a
Cleveland volcano is monitored by only two seismic stations, which restricts AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.
