A pair of small eruptions are recorded on Cleveland Volcano

Associated PressApril 14, 2012 

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.
