Yasur (Vanuatu) has shown an increase in activity and was set on alert level 3, meaning that the access to the crater is currently closed, as bombs are falling outside the crater rim and into the car park area.
In Papua New Guinea, Manam volcano has been highly active recently, producing strong intermittent explosive activity and occasional pyroclastic flows.
Bagana volcano had an explosion today that produced an ash cloud reaching 3 km altitude today, Darvin VAAC reports.
In the Mariana Islands, Pagan volcano is steaming, but there are no recently observed eruptions.
VAAC reports also ash clouds at mostly the same volcanoes than the last couple of days : Batu Tara (Sunda Islands, Indonesia) (ash clouds up to 7000 ft or 2.1 km) and Sakurajima volcano (ash clouds up to 7000 ft or 2.1 km).
NOAA's satellite images have shown strong SO2 emissions during some of the past days for both Popocatépetl in Mexico and Kilauea volcano on Hawaii.
