A quick FYI in case you have travel planned that will take you through the region.

Reuters has been reporting that a fairly active volcano in Alaska, named Cleveland (yes, Cleveland), situated on an uninhabited island about 940 miles southwest of Anchorage has erupted, with plumes reaching 15,000 feet. Not high enough to really impact most routes, but if the volcano continues to erupt, the plumes could be sent higher wreaking havoc on airways that span the region. According to Reuters, the Alaska Volcano Observatory stated that additional eruptions can happen with no warning.

The last time “Cleveland” erupted was in 2001 when it sent ash all the way up to 39,000 ft.
