2 small eruptions recorded on Cleveland Volcano
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The U.S. Geological Survey recorded two small eruptions of the Cleveland Volcano on Friday detected by changes in air pressure.
The agency says neither explosion produced an ash cloud that could be detected in satellite images.
Sudden explosions of blocks and ash are likely while the volcano remains active.
The agency says it's possible for associated ash clouds to exceed 20,000 feet above sea level.
Thursday's high in Juneau sets record for date
Juneau established a record high temperature for the date Thursday.
It reached 62 degrees at the airport. The previous record was 57 degrees in 2003.
Meteorologist Tim Steffen says it will be a little cooler today.
The record for this date is 59. Today's high is expected to range in the mid to upper 50s, so he says it will probably fall a little short today.
