August 3, 2011 – Mount Cleveland Set to Erupt: Mount Cleveland (above), in the Alaskan Aleutian Island Chain, is currently coded “Orange” with an Alert Status Level of “Watch.” This means Cleveland (5,676 feet) is exhibiting escalating unrest with increased potential for eruption. Cleveland was raised to status Orange, the second highest level below Red. Clouds have obscured the summit of Cleveland during the past 48 hours. However, according to aerial views, the eruption of a slowly growing lava dome at the Cleveland volcano continues. Observers photographed a small, dark-colored dome centered at the bottom of the summit crater. In the last clear satellite view of the summit the lava dome was about 60 meters (197 feet) in diameter. Several thermal anomalies were observed, with the volcano venting steam and ash.
A significant volcanic eruption, for Mount Cleveland, is predicted for September 29, 2012; at 10:54AM Pacific Time (U.S. Time Zone). This prediction is based upon an in-depth study of volcanic eruptions and Mount Cleveland. I coded a special Excel VBA Macro for this prediction. This macro analyzed over 2,000 years of volcanic eruptions, obtained from the USGS and NOAA websites.
