AVO/USGS Volcanic Activity Notice

Volcano: Cleveland (CAVW #1101-24-)

Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY

Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW

Issued: Monday, December 30, 2013, 10:22 PM AKST (20131231/0722Z)
Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
Notice Number: 2013/A21
Location: N 52 deg 49 min W 169 deg 56 min
Elevation: 5676 ft (1730 m)
Area: Aleutians Alaska

Volcanic Activity Summary: Brief explosion from Cleveland Volcano detected at 4:06 UTC Dec. 31 (19:06 AKST, Dec. 30). No satellite images available after the time of the explosion, so uncertain if minor ash cloud generated, but unlikely. This explosion was similar to the explosion detected at 21:29 UTC December 28 (12:29 AKST).

Similar such explosions may continue without warning, and may produce minor ash clouds that are not expected to extend much beyond the volcano, but could produce local fallout on the flanks of the volcano. AVO has received no reports of activity from local observers.

Recent Observations:
[Volcanic cloud height] Unknown
[Other volcanic cloud information] Unknown
