Alaska has long nagging volcano threw ash cloud


Remote Aleutian volcano, which showed signs of activity for the past year, woke up on Tuesday, releasing a cloud of ash for miles.

Scientists say the cloud poses little threat to the aircraft. Cleveland Volcano — 1730-meter peak on an uninhabited island 940 miles from Anchorage — shot a cloud of ash into the 02.05 local time, reports the Alaska Volcano Observatory. Satellite image shows that the volcanic cloud rapidly resorbed, but the pilots are warned of the danger, since it is not ruled out re-emission.
