Eruption news from Cleveland volcano:

Cleveland volcano (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): Volcanic Alert Level lowered to Green

The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported that a sustained pause in volcanic unrest at Cleveland Volcano over the last few months has prompted to downgrade the Aviation Color Code and Volcano Alert Level from YELLOW/ADVISORY to UNASSIGNED/UNASSIGNED.
The last eruptive activity at Cleveland Volcano was a short-lived explosion on the evening (local time) of June 1, 2020. Since then, there has been no evidence from satellite observations of elevated surface temperatures, and there have been no observed changes in the summit crater.
Despite the current pause, the eruptive period at Cleveland, dating back to 2001, remains ongoing and future explosions are likely. These occur without warning and typically generate small clouds of volcanic ash that are a hazard in the immediate vicinity of the volcano, though more significant ash emissions are possible.
