Eruption Type:Explosive

Description: From Jaggar (1932): "Captain Nelson of the 'Eunice' brought word on January 18, 1932, that Mount Cleveland on Chuginadak Island, a peak 8156 feet high, approximately 150 English miles west of Dutch Harbor, had again broken into eruption, starting about January 1, 1932. It was reported to him that seven great puffs had occurred in one hour, the volcano sending up very dense smoke. Generally only a little steam had been seen at the crater during previous visits. He passes those Islands of the Four Mountains three or four times a year in his trading trips for the Alaska Commercial Company. He was surprised to see such dense volumes of black fume when he passed the island in early January, the sky being continuously darkened."
