AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION
(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20200617/1956Z)
(3) Volcano: Cleveland (VNUM #311240)
(4) Current Color Code: YELLOW
(5) Previous Color Code: ORANGE
(6) Source: Alaska Volcano Observatory
(7) Notice Number:
(8) Volcano Location: N 52 deg 49 min W 169 deg 56 min
(9) Area: Aleutians
(10) Summit Elevation: 5676 ft (1730 m)
(11) Volcanic Activity Summary: There has been no sign of eruptive activity at Cleveland volcano since a short-lived explosion on the evening (local time) of June 1, 2020. Thus, the Aviation Color Code and Volcano Alert Level are being reduced to YELLOW/ADVISORY.

Cleveland is almost always in a state of unrest and explosions will occur without warning. They typically generate small clouds of volcanic ash that are a hazard in the immediate vicinity of the volcano. Ash fall on the upper flanks of the volcano is also common. Flows of mud and/or hot hot rock are generated in the drainages during some of these explosive events and can extend all the way to coast.

The local geophysical stations and web camera at Cleveland are currently unavailable due to an ongoing network outage. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of regional infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.
(12) Volcanic cloud height: none
(13) Other volcanic cloud information: n/a
