There are confirmed reports that Alaska’s Cleveland Volcano is erupting.  There was an early Saturday morning explosion, followed by a continuous flow of gas, steam, and ash.  The material streaming from the volcano is reaching an altitude of about 15,000 feet in an easterly direction, but is not interfering with civilian aircraft.

Scientists say the first explosion began at 5 a.m. Saturday, followed by two others at 9:17 and 11:44 a.m.  Seismic activity shows a sustained eruption.

The Cleveland Volcano is located in an isolated region of the Aleutian Islands, 940 miles southwest of Anchorage.
