Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Clouds have obscured the summit of Cleveland volcano over the past 24 hours. AVO has received no new information or observations about unrest at the volcano since thermal anomalies were observed yesterday morning.
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.
