Continuous low-level eruptions have been recorded at the Cleveland Volcano in Alaska's Aleutian Islands located 940 miles southwest of Anchorage, scientists say.

The eruptions began with an explosion early Saturday morning, followed by two other explosions hours later, The Associated Press reported.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory and U.S. Geological Survey say satellites and cameras suggest low-level eruptions of gas, steam and a small amount of ash. Satellites detected highly elevated surface temperatures at the summit of Cleveland Volcano.

The Federal Aviation Administration said there are no flight restrictions near Cleveland Volcano as a result.

Cleveland Volcano's most recent significant eruption began in February 2001 and featured three explosive events that sent ash clouds 39,000 feet above sea level. Cleveland Volcano also produced a rubbly lava flow and hot avalanche that overflowed into the sea.
