The beautifully symmetrical Mount Cleveland stratovolcano forms the western half of the uninhabited Chuginadak Island in the eastern Aleutians, connected to the eastern half of the island by a narrow isthmus. It is one of the regions most active volcanoes, but at present has no seismic network. Monitoring of its activity is largely based on satellite observation.

Eruption news from Cleveland volcano:
Cleveland volcano (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): small explosion last night
Tuesday Jun 02, 2020 10:52 AM | BY: MARTIN
Cleveland volcano visible from satellite yesterday (image: Sentinel 2)
The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) recorded a small explosion at 22:32 local time yesterday. An ash plume rose to an altitude of 22,000 ft (6,700 m) and drifted south.
Explosions from Cleveland typically produce relatively small volcanic ash clouds that dissipate within hours; however, more significant ash emissions are possible.
The alert level for the volcano was raised to “orange”.
