Eruption news from Cleveland volcano:

Cleveland volcano (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): small explosion occurred last night

Thursday Dec 13, 2018 09:35 AM | BY: T

A small explosion at the volcano's summit was detected last night at 20:53 UTC (11:53 AKST) on seismic data, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.
The event was minor: "no ash cloud has yet been detected in satellite imagery and no other significant activity was detected."
"Explosions from Cleveland typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours; however, more significant ash emissions are possible." (AVO)
The alert level of the volcano was raised to ORANGE.
