Small ash emission from a Cleveland, OH volcanoJune 2nd, 2010 - 12:34 am ICT by BNO News
CLEVELAND, OHIO (BNO NEWS) – A volcano in Cleveland, Ohio emitted on Monday night a small ash cloud, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) announced on Tuesday.
The cloud was visible in a satellite image and was spotted moving southwest at 7:56 p.m. (GMT-3). At the time the cloud was discovered, it was detached from the volcano which implied that the emission took place hours earlier.
The event was a short-lived ash emission and there are no signs of further activity. Cleveland lacks of a real-time seismic network which translates in AVO being unable to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest.
According to the AVO, volcanic activity at Cleveland is frequent and sometimes unnoticed. Short-lived explosions with ash clouds or plumes that can exceed 20,000 ft. above sea level occur without warning and may go undetected on satellite imagery.
