Karymsky volcano is showing incread seismic activity. Moderate ash emissions send small plumes to up to 3,000 m (9,800 ft) a.s.l. traveling SW as observed by pilots. On 23 June, the alert level at Karymsky volcano was increased to Concern Color Code Orange....more
The Mexican Civil Defense informed that during last 24 hours two ash eruptions have been registered as well as lahars without damages to the populations bordering to the volcano .
On slopes of the volcano a great amount of demolished trees was observed generated by the piroclastic flows, which increases the risk of pyroclastic avalanches in any future volcanic activity.
During the past week, several ash explosions have taken place, sending plumes to heights of up to 5,500 m a.s.l., drifting N and NW.
Two short videoclips showing the active lava lake on Hawaii have been posted.
Langila volcano continues to erupt, producing ash fall over near-by communities, where about 10,000 people live. Ashfall is causing respiratory problems and has damaged small plantations, food and water supply. Authorities have started to evacuate some people in the most affected villages and to bring in temporary shelter, water and food suplies.
New photos from our last tour on Santorini (May, 2005) have been added and new dates for 2006 for the Fascination Volcano tour are now online. There are a few spaces left for the 24 Sep.-1 Oct. 2005 tour.
Reventador Volcano in Ecuador has started to erupt again on Tuesday. According to Hugo Yepez, director of Geophysics Institute of the National Polytechnical School (IGEPN), a lava flow inside the crater has appeared. There is an increased possibility of explosive events in the near future.
Reventador, 3,485 meters high, is a symmetrical stratovolcano that had a major explosion on November 3, 2002, when a thick layer of ash reached the capital Quito.
The world's longest ongoing eruptino continues with a beatiful display: new breakouts of lava have appeared on the slope towards the sea (on the E branch of the PKK flow high on Pulama pali) on the morning of June 20, forming a narrow river of lava....more [read all]
Fuego remains in a state of weak strombolian activity. During the past weekend, INSIVUMEH reported, 6 week strombolian explosions with ejection of incandescent material to heights of 20 m and more than 20 explosions producing mainly white steam have taken place. The lava flow on the S flank is still active, but its front does not advance significantly and is located at 300m distance from the crater.
On June 20, two lava flows descended yesterday from the central crater and have reached 150 and 200 m length. Small strombolian explosions continue from the crater.
