Cleveland volcano (Aleutians, USA): moderate explosive eruption on 6 Feb. 2006
The remote Cleveland volcano erupted on the morning of 6 February 2006 at 7:57AM AKST (1657 UTC). An ash clomn was detected by statellite, rising to approximately 7 km a.s.l. (22,000 ft) and extending about 80 miles (130 kilometers) ESE of the island. The explosion appears to be an isolated event, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reports. The concern code was originally raised to RED (highest level) and has now (7 Feb) again been lowered to YELLOW.

Before we send out our formal newsletter, when the programs for 2006 are completed, a quick notice to announce that Tom will offer a new, 12-days tour / expedition to the Rift Valley including Lengai volcano in Feb. and summer 2006, Costa Rica in late March and (probably) July 2006. As well, Tobias (who is right now touring in the Saronic Gulf) awaits with a new, exciting program on Milos, a wonderful, volcanic island in Greece! Other new or recently developped programs include Nisyros (Greece) and the Eifel region in Germany (details will come soon).
Greetings from Athens! Tom
