Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An Alaskan volcano roared to life on Saturday spewing a cloud of ash, steam and gas into the atmosphere, potentially disrupting a major air traffic route, according to scientists. The Cleveland Volcano, which sits at the western end of Chuginadak Island (part of the Aleutian Islands), erupted in at least three low-level explosions that were not severe enough to cause significant threats to air travel, but did force federal...

The Alaska Volcano Observatory raised a warning level for a remote Alaskan volcano on Tuesday, indicating a possible eruption. The center elevated the alert status for Cleveland Volcano after a new lava dome was spotted in the summit crater.  Officials said the dome was about 130 feet in diameter as of Monday. The volcano is a 5,675-foot peak on an uninhabited island, 940 miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska. Authorities say sudden eruptions could occur at any time, and ash...

  Mount Cleveland, a volcano sitting on the western half of Chuginidak Island 115 miles west of Dutch Harbor and 950 miles southwest of Anchorage, is reported to be on watch status with an aviation color code of orange, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO). Anchorage Daily News reported in July that a lava dome was forming in the crater of the volcano and reached a width of 140 feet in diameter. But on August 30, it appeared that the lava dome had reached a maximum...

Alaska's Mount Redoubt has gradually slowed down in activity since the last eruption three months ago. The Alaska Volcano Observatory said on Tuesday that seismic activity has calmed down and the eruptions may have stopped. The observatory has dropped the alert levels for the areas around the mountain. Several eruptions starting in March interrupted air traffic and covered Anchorage, the Kenai Peninsula and Wasilla with ash. Due to prior events, geologists felt that the eruptions would be...

Friday saw another round of volcanic explosions at Alaska's Mount Redoubt, shooting ash clouds as high as 50,000 feet above sea level and sending drivers on a run to the auto parts store for replacement air filters, the Associated Press reported. The majority of the ash was anticipated to fall to the north, the National Weather Service proposed, however slight amounts of ash from two Friday eruptions, as well as smaller overnight eruptions, could send ash falling on Anchorage itself. ...

For the first time in nearly 20 years, the 10,200-foot Mount Redoubt in Alaska erupted five times overnight Sunday, propelling a 9 mile cloud of ash into the air, the Associated Press reported.  Although residents of the state's most populated city did not witness any falling ash, small communities just north of Anchorage observed bits of falling, fine gray dust on Monday. In a small 24-hour grocery store located in Willow, a small town just 50 miles north of Anchorage, 56-year old,...

In the latest sign that an eruption could be imminent, further seismic activity has been detected at Alaska's Mount Redoubt, scientists reported Saturday.  "Since late Friday afternoon, seismic activity has been relatively low at Redoubt; however, it is still above normal background levels," the Alaska Volcano Observatory said early Saturday. "The volcano is in a state of unrest," it said. Geologists monitoring the volcano for indications of a possible eruption noticed that a hole in...

Alaska's Mount Redoubt volcano is expected to erupt at any time now and scientists are keeping a watchful eye on the volcano's hour-to-hour activity. The Alaska Volcano Observatory told CNN news that Redoubt's seismic activity level of has increased markedly in recent days at the 10,197-foot peak located about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, the state's most populous city. Peter Cervelli, a research geophysicist with the observatory, is keeping a watchful eye on the volcano. "We don't have...

The Alaskan Volcano Observatory says Mount Redoubt is rumbling and an eruption of the 10,917-foot peak could occur within days. Mount Redoubt, located about 100 miles southwest of Anchorage, last erupted between December 1989 and April 1990, the Anchorage Daily News reported Monday. A nearly continuous volcanic tremor was recorded Sunday at stations near Redoubt's summit, prompting AVO to raise the Aviation Color Code to orange and the alert level to watch, the report said. The current...

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- After 10 days of relative calm, Alaska's Augustine Volcano roared back to life late on Friday, shooting a cloud of ash 40,000 feet into the sky. It was the 10th explosion since January 11, when the 4,134-foot (1,260-meter) volcano in southern Cook Inlet began an eruptive phase, reported the Alaska Volcano Observatory, a joint federal-state office. As of late Friday, there were no reports of ash settling onto any of the nearby communities, but some was expected to drift...
