52°49'20" N 169°56'42" W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: ADVISORY
Current Aviation Color Code: YELLOW
Clouds have obscured views of the volcano by satellite and web camera over the past 24 hours. AVO has received no new reports of ash emissions or other activity at Cleveland Volcano.
AVO monitors Cleveland Volcano with satellite imagery as weather allows. The lack of a real-time seismic network at Cleveland means that AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest. Short-lived explosions producing local ash fall and diffuse ash clouds that could exceed 20,000 ft above sea level can occur without warning. Such ash clouds may be difficult or impossible to detect in satellite imagery. Please see http://www.avo.alaska.edu/activity/Cleveland.php
for more information.
