New eruption starts at Alaska’s Cleveland volcano

August 10, 2011 ALASKA – One of Alaska’s most active volcanoes has started erupting, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO). The 1,730 m (5,676 ft) high Cleveland Volcano, also known as Mount Cleveland, began erupting early on Tuesday. However, the stratovolcano’s remoteness is limiting opportunities for its study, reported the AVO which is relying heavily on satellites for monitoring. According to the AVO: “Without a real-time seismic network on the volcano, AVO is unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest, provide forecasts of eruptive activity, or confirmation of explosive, ash-producing events. AVO is monitoring the volcano using satellite data as it becomes available. Such data suggests that effusive eruption of the lava dome in the summit crater is possibly continuing.” One of the most active volcanoes in the Aleutian Arc, Cleveland has erupted at least 21 times in the last 230 years. A VEI 3 eruption in 1944 produced the arc’s only direct volcanic fatality. Most recently Mount Cleveland has erupted three times in 2009, and twice in 2010. The volcano is primarily hazardous to aircraft; many of the flights over the north Pacific approach the vicinity of the volcano, and volcanic ash released from eruptions can damage sensitive electronic equipment and sensors. –IWO

    Good Morning Alvin,

    I’m sure Sarah Palin can see this from her house and will address this shortly… (sorry, my bad)

    A few of your readers have mentioned the photon belt recently. I’ve tucked these sites away for awhile now, not knowing what to make of it. (?pseudo-scientific belief)

    I’m beginning to think there may be some merit to all of this.

    Have you addressed this topic on your site in the past — can’t find anything.

    look what I just read —

    Thank you,

    I’m hoping that these are instrument errors.

    They have the characteristics of it… asymetrical jumps in what are usually symetrical waveforms.

    luisport —
    if I see one more 11:11…..

    even the recent large powerball jackpots had 11 the past two weeks

    (I met my hubby at 1:11 am on 11/1 — I drove him home in my first digitized car after a halloween party waaay back when)

    I continue to wake up most mornings at 1:11

    Etna maybe heating up for its 10th paroxysm this year – there have been lots of small ash emissions during the day, and as of today (11 August) evening, small, sporadic Strombolian bursts are taking place at the New Southeast Crater.

    Work in progress

    At the same time, Stromboli is producing yet another tiny intracrater lava flow, which is running down from a small cone standing on the southwest rim of the crater terrace (seen at left in the webcam image; the lava flow is visible as a very bright streak on the right side of the cone):

    oh luis…

    now with the 4:44 – I used to be DEATHLY afraid of those numbers (ex-feng shui practitioner)

    I’ve come to accept that they represent new beginnings/life lessons – i.e. as in the death of something
