Cleveland Volcano spews ash

Alaska, USA
NIKOLSKI -- Cleveland Volcano on the Aleutian arc began erupting Friday evening, spewing a plume of ash about 20,000 feet high, according to the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

The observatory has upgraded the alert and aviation levels to their second-highest ratings, indicating the volcano poses a limited threat to aviation and nearby communities, which include Nikolski and Dutch Harbor.

The 5,676-foot volcano has been fairly active in recent years, with one eruption in 2007 and four in 2006.
