ALASKA VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 12:50 PM AKDT (Wednesday, June 2, 2010, 20:50 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
AVO detected a weak thermal anomaly in satellite images at Cleveland early this morning. Satellite images from earlier this week suggest continuing low level ash emission following Sunday evening's small event.
AVO has no real-time seismic network at Cleveland which means we are unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest. Low-level ash emissions at Cleveland occur frequently and do not necessarily mean a larger eruption is imminent. Short-lived explosions with ash clouds or plumes that could exceed 20,000 ft above sea level can occur without warning and may go undetected on satellite imagery.
