"Alaska volcano lava
dome forms, alert level raised"
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ‹ The warning level for a remote Alaska
volcano has been raised after a new lava dome began forming,
indicating the mountain could explode and send up an ash cloud
that could threaten aircraft.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory on Tuesday elevated the alert
status for Cleveland Volcano.
Officials say the new lava dome was spotted in the summit
crater. The observatory says as of Monday, the dome was about
130 feet in diameter.
