Alaska Volcano Spews Ash Plume Near Air Traffic Route

On Saturday, in the remote wilderness of Alaska, Cleveland volcano experienced 3 explosions and started emitting plumes of ash and steam. From the perspective of air traffic authorities, this presents a problem because the volcano lies below a major air-traffic route between North American and Asia. The threat to airplane traffic is significant and a number of flights have already been diverted.
