|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||An explosion was detected at Cleveland Volcano in seismic and infrasound data this morning 04:20 AKST (13:20 UTC). The explosion produced an eruption cloud that was observed in satellite data to an altitude of up to 20,000 ft asl and moving to the east. AVO is raising the color code for Cleveland to Aviation Color Code ORANGE and Alert Level WATCH.|

|(14) Remarks:||The National Weather Service Alaska Aviation Weather Unit has issued an eruption SIGMET warning for aviation up to 20,000 ft above sea level. This may be revised as new information becomes available. Please see the NWS AAWU at http://www.weather.gov/aawu/sigmets for updated information on aviation warning messages.
Cleveland volcano is not monitored with a full real-time seismic network and this inhibits AVO's ability to detect unrest that may lead to future activity. We are able to detect explosive activity using infrasound and limited seismic instruments on the island.
