|(8) Volcano Location:||N 52 deg 49 min W 169 deg 56 min|
|(10) Summit Elevation:||5676 ft (1730 m)|
|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||Local seismic and infrasound sensors recorded a small explosion today at 11:55 UTC (03:55 AKST). We are raising the Aviation Color Code to ORANGE and the Alert Level to WATCH.
Explosions from Cleveland typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours. No ash cloud from this event has been seen in satellite images, which currently are partly obscured by weather clouds.
Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits 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.
