An explosion was heard from the Cleveland Volcano by residents in the village of Nikolski.
The 5676′ active volcano is on Chuginadak Island, which lies 940 miles southwest of Anchorage. The alert level on Cleveland was subsequently raised from yellow to orange.
Cleveland, named after former U.S. President Grover Cleveland, is one of Alaska’s most active volcanos.
Meanwhile, in Ohio, the Cleveland Indians exploded for 6 runs in a shutout win over the Chicago Cubs. Coincidence?
