Mount Cleveland is on alert level yellow. The french blog Volcanic News Erutpion states it as being restless. http://volcansvanuatueruptionsgb.blogspot.fr/2014/03/08032014-nevado-de-colima-cleveland.html and used this image from January 2nd. We never had a post on Cleveland so here is a short summary.
On February 25th a small ash cloud was drifting away from Cleveland
Celveland is stratovolcano with almost symmetrical shape. It is situated on Chuginadak Island of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. It originates like all its siblings, the volcanic Aleutan Islands due to the Pacific Plate subducting under the North American Plate.
The name comes from grover Cleveland, who was president of the USA 1894 when the Island was visited by of a team U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. The native Aleut name for Mount Cleveland is Chuginadak, nowadays the name for the whole island, Chuginadak refers to the Aleut fire goddess, thought to reside in the volcano. A lack of erosion shows that Mount Cleveland is likely a Holocene volcano, forming within the last 10,000 years.
It is one of the most active volcanoes of the Aleutian arch. No permanent settlements are located on the Chuginadak Island. So no people are in immediate danger should Cleveland decide to erupt. But an ash cloud could threaten planes because a frequently used route comes close to the vicinity of the volcano and this is why Cleveland is being monitored using satellite imagery. No seismic equipment is on the island.
There used to be a webcam pointed at Cleveland. I checked it frequently but there was hardly ever anything to be seen due to bad weather or nighttime ;). The site states that the cam needs to be rehoused as of end of December 2013 which has not happened yet.
If the cam comes back, the address should be https://www.avo.alaska.edu/webcam/Cleveland.php
Mount Cleveland seems to be a very popular volcano (?) because if you check the term volcano on Wikipedia this ->
is the top image you will see.
Quote Wikipedia: “Mount Cleveland is an almost symmetrical andesite stratovolcano in the Islands of Four Mountains, a volcanic group in the Aleutian Arc. Like all stratovolcanoes, Mount Cleveland grew as explosive eruptions, effusive eruptions, and lahars built it layer by layer into a concave-up shape. It lies southeast of Mount Carlisle and northeast of Herbert Island. Mount Cleveland forms the western half of Chuginadak Island, a broad and uneven bell-shaped landmass, and is the highest of the four volcanic islands. The island is completely uninhabited; the nearest settlement is Nikolski on Umnak Island, about 75 km (47 mi) eastward.“
