The Cleveland volcano produced a new batch of lava, which led scientists to raise the level of anxiety in the volcano area. Over the past few weeks, satellite images have shown lava from a small mound in the depth of the crater on a wide dome covering about 46 meters.
The Alaska Volcanic Observatory did not detect any seismic activity near the volcano. But scientists observe elevated surface temperatures of a troubled mountain.
Cleveland is one of the most active volcanoes in Alaska. His last explosion was at the end of March. Now scientists say that the new lava indicates “increased potential for a new eruption.”
