AVO VOLCANO ACTIVITY NOTIFICATION
(1) VOLCANO OBSERVATORY NOTICE FOR AVIATION (VONA)
(2) Issued: (20200602/0746Z)
(3) Volcano: Cleveland (VNUM #311240)
(4) Current Color Code: ORANGE
(5) Previous Color Code: UNASSIGNED
(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: Regional infrasound sensors recorded a small explosion today at about 06:32 UTC (10:32 AKST). No other significant activity was detected and local monitoring stations are offline. A small ash plume was observed at 22,000 ft drifting to the south.

Explosions from Cleveland typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours; however, more significant ash emissions are possible.

Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.
(12) Volcanic cloud height: 22,000 ft
(13) Other volcanic cloud information: Drifting to the south
