|(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)|
|(3) Volcano:||Cleveland (VNUM #311240)|
|(4) Current Color Code:||YELLOW|
|(5) Previous Color Code:||ORANGE|
|(6) Source:||Alaska Volcano Observatory|
|(7) Notice Number:||2014/A2|
|(8) Volcano Location:||N 52 deg 49 min W 169 deg 56 min|
|(10) Summit Elevation:||5676 ft (1730 m)|
|(11) Volcanic Activity Summary:||No activity has been observed at Cleveland since the three brief explosions on December 28 and 30 and January 2. Satellite views since January 2 suggest that no new lava has effused at the summit crater. Thus we are lowering the Level of Concern Color Code to YELLOW and the Alert Level to ADVISORY.
It remains possible for brief, sudden explosions of blocks and ash from the summit vent to occur with little to no warning. These explosions may produce drifting ash clouds and local fallout of ash over the surrounding ocean, on the flanks of Cleveland Volcano, and on parts of Chuginadak Island. It is possible that more energetic explosions will occur that may produce more significant ash clouds.
If a large ash-producing event occurs, nearby seismic, infrasound, or volcanic lightning networks should alert AVO staff quickly. However, for some events, a delay of several hours or more is possible. Cleveland volcano does not have a local seismic network and is monitored using only distant seismic and infrasound instruments and satellite data.
