Colima Volcano showed an increase in seismic activity during the last days and several explosions occurred during the past days. According to the Washington VAAC, an explosion on 20 April produced an ash plume to a height of ~6.1 km (~20,000 ft) a.s.l. The activity sparked forest fires on the southeastern slopes of the volcano, but no danger was posed to neighbouring communities.

Talang volcano remains active with ash-emissions producing clouds up to 250-300 meters. The dangerous volcano remains under close surveillance and alert level 4 (out of 5) is being maintained. It is possible, or even expected that it will have stronger eruptions soon. Seismicity at the volcano is high....mehr
After an increased seismic activity, a small volcanic eruption was observed at Mt. Aso volcano, Japan, in the Kumamoto Prefecture, about 900 km southwest of Tokyo. According to the Fukuoka District Meteorological Observatory, tiny amounts of gray-white volcanic ash fell near the No. 1 crater of the 1,506-meter volcano around 10 a.m. on 14 April, 2005....mehr [alles lesen]
Krakatoa volcano in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra is showing an increased seismic activity as the Indonesian Volcanological Survey reports. Whether eruptive activity is already taking place, is not known at the moment due to bad obvservation conditions, but it is likely that there is or will be activity in the very near future.

Tangkuban Parahu, a volcano in west Java very near the regional capital Bandung (2 million inhabitants) might be coming back to life very soon. The Volcanological Survey of Indonesia has raised the alert level and reports strongly increased seismicity, and strong emission of sulphuric gasses since today. Access to the volcano is fobidden.
Indonesian villagers in Bukit Sileh village cover their mouths while smoke spews out from Mt. Talang in Solok district of Indonesian West Sumatra island, April 12, 2005.
Talang volcano in Indonesia erupted on 12 April, 2005, producing ash clouds of about 1 km height (3,000 ft). Talang volcano is located in Sumatra, just 40 km east of the coastal capital of the West Sumatra province, Padang. It is close to the areas affected by recent large earthquakes, but it is dangerous to say that there is a direct link between those events, since this is not known. Although some relation cannot be excluded, volcanoes and earthquakes have very different dynaics.

This image was released by NASA Tuesday April 5, 2005; it shows a thick cloud of ash erupted from the Anatahan Volcano, Mariana Islands (Pacific Ocean). According to the Washington Volcanic Ash Advisory Center, a series of low-level eruptions starting on April 4 have created this plume.
A large explosive eruption occurred at Anatahan volcano, Mariana Islands (Pacific Ocean) at 0300 on April 6 (local time), 1700 April 5 UT. The eruption produced an ash plume that reached the highest altitude thus far during its current eruption - about 50,000 feet (ca. 16 km)....mehr [alles lesen]

Popocatepetl volcano, near Mexico City, continues to be active. After its last eruption that had ended in 1927, the volcano woke up from his slumber in 1994 and has since then been active, with changing intensity. At present, it seems to be rather quiet, with an average of 10-20 minor strombolian events per day, that produce nice ash and steam plumes that rise severl 100s of meters. No recent growth of a lava dome has been observed by CENAPRED, the ufficial monitoring organ hosted at the university of Mexico. Although much more violent activity in the near future is unlikely, a safety exclusion zone of 12km around the volcano is maintained.

After a slight decrease in activity towards the beginning of March, (visual) lava effusion rates have again increased drastically during the past 10 days. About three times the average volume of lava from Kilauea volcano has been flowing into the ocean, forming a new ocean entry cluster at Kamoamoa. At the time of writing, lava is flowing into the sea at about 10 different points distributed over 3 ocean entry clusters.
Eruptive and seismic activity at Klyuchevsky volcano, neighbour of Sheveluch (also active at the time of writing) has decreased but remains. According to press reports, strong strombolian explosions from the summit crater eject ash and blocks to up to 1000 m above the crater and lava flows are travelling down the upper flanks, interacting with ice and snow, that produce secondary ash clouds.
As the Russian agency Novosti and the Alaska Volcano Observatory report, Sheveluch volcano, Kamchatka (Russia), is remains highly active. After the violent eruption on February 27, 2005, that destroyed the upper parts of the lava dome, thus lowering the total height of the mountain by 200 m, the lava dome has re-grown by more than 50 m during the past 20 days and keeps increasing. The rapid growth, caused by continuing influx rate of fresh magma, triggers frequent hot rockfalls and small pyroclastic flows.

On the 26th of March, the Civil Protection authorities have partially re-openend access to Stromboli's summit area, which had formally been off-limits since the eruption and landslide in late December 2002. Access is free until 400m elevation without an authorized guide, and above that it is permitted to visit the summit area if accompanied by an authorized mountain guide, but the stay in the summit area is limited to 1 hour total duration and only until 11pm.

The Russian news agency Novosti reports a strong eruption by Sheveluch volcano on March 23, 2005, that destroyed a camp of vulcanologists and the seismic station at Baidarnaya, located eight kilometers from the volcano.
As KVERT (Kamchatkan Volcanic Eruptions Response Team) reports, the eruption at Klyuchevkoy volcano in Kamtchatka has increased dramatically:

Wie die Preese berichtet sind die Gebiete, die seit dem neuen Erwachen des Mt. St. Helens 2004 gesperrt wurden wieder für Besucher zugänglich gemacht worden. Zuvor hatte sich die Aktivität deutlich abgeschwächt. Das gilt auch für das Johnston Ridge Observatorium, das im Oktober 2004 ebenfalls geschlossen wurde. Die Wiedereröffung fand am 6. März statt. Der Berg ist weiterhin über dem Loowit Pfad geschlossen, womit die beliebte Kletterroute an der Südseite nicht zugänglich ist. So weit es die Sicherheitslage erlaubt, werden die Pfade am Ridge-Gipfel am Norden des Vulkans und die Gegend Margaret Berg geöffnet. Wegen der Gefahr von Schlammströmen bleiben die Bereiche der Loowit- und Truman-Pfade weiterhin geschlossen.
