Eruption news from Cleveland volcano:

Cleveland volcano (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): explosive eruption on 19 June sends ash to 35,000 ft

Cleveland volcano in the Aleutian Islands (Alaska) had an explosive eruption at 14.05 local time on 19 June, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported, who raised the alert status to Orange (3 out of 4). Based on pilots' observations, an ash plume rose to about 35,000 ft (10,6 km). As the eruptions blog writes, a possible explanation could be that the eruption was caused by a collapse of the lava dome, but Cleveland's remote location makes it difficult to confirm this.
Interestingly, a 6.0 magnitude earthquake at 14 km depth occurred in the Aleutians 1200 km to the west from Cleveland 6 hours earlier, but this might be simple coincidence.

Based on analyses of satellite images, AVO reported on 4 May that the small lava dome recently emplaced in Cleveland's summit crater had been destroyed late in the previous week, but the explosion was too small to be detected by distant infrasound and seismic networks. A small new dome was extruded following the explosion and was the fifth dome to be observed in this eruptive episode which began in July 2011. During 4-5 May two small explosions were detected. ... read all
