New eruption at Cleveland Volcano in Alaska

The Alaska Volcano Observatory detected that a new (so far minor) eruptive episode has started at the volcano recently:
 
“Elevated surface temperatures have been detected in satellite images at the summit of Cleveland for the past week, and an image from June 14 shows very light ash cover on the volcano’s upper flanks. Thus the volcano has entered a renewed period of unrest and we are raising the Color Code to Yellow and the Alert Level to Advisory. 
 
The increase in temperature at the summit is consistent with renewed growth of the small lava dome within the summit crater. The possibility of sudden explosions has increased.”
