Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): Moderate to strong strombolian activity continues at the summit crater, producing a sustained plume that rises approx. 1500 m above the summit and drifts eastwards.
Incandescent avalanches descent the southwestern and western flanks. From webcam and MODIS thermal images, it seems, however, that no (or only a shorter) sustained lava flow is currently active.

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): An unusually strong explosion occurred yesterday at 20:36 local time. VAAC Tokyo reported an ash plume to 16,000 ft (5 km) altitude. Today, the volcano has been much calmer with only a few smaller eruptions and phases of ash emissions.

Colima (Western Mexico): Eruptive activity continues at moderate levels with effusion of viscous lava at the summit, producing frequent smaller and sometimes larger rockfalls and avalanches. Small to moderate explosions occur a few times per day:

Bardarbunga (Central Iceland): No significant changes in seismic and volcanic activity have occurred recently at the ongoing Holuhraun eruption, but overall, a slowly decreasing trend of the activity is becoming evident. Still, magma effusion remains quite impressive, especially the large lava lake inside Baugur crater on the main part of the fissure. ... [more]

Kliuchevskoi (Kamchatka): Mild strombolian activity continues at the summit crater, producing small ash plumes that drift one after the other from the volcano. A short lava flow might still be active on the southeast side, but this is not certain from available imagery. ... [more]
