Volcanoes Today, 12 Feb 2016: Colima volcano, Sakurajima

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): The volcano continues to produce small to moderate vulcanian explosions at rates of a few per day, typically.

Colima (Western Mexico): The volcano continues to produce intermittent explosions, but there might be something new in the making: weak, but continuous glow from the crater has appeared during the last night, something that hasn't been observed since the latest effusive eruptive phase in July last year. It could indicate that a new lava dome is about to appear. The next days or weeks will probably give a better answer.
