Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): According to visual monitoring through webcams, reports by friends on the island and from volcanologist involved, activity at the volcano has decreased recently and is now back at average levels, with frequent small to moderate sized strombolian explosions.
Larger explosions, however, can always occur at any time and with no warning.

Öraefajökull (Iceland): A magnitude 3.1 earthquake occurred yesterday under the northern caldera of the volcano. Its very shallow depth (given as 100 m) suggests that it is most likely caused by adjustments of the glacier and not by a magma intrusion.
However, seismic activity at the volcano remains above background and it is being monitored by the Icelandic Met Office (IMO). There are currently no signs that activity is increasing towards new volcanic activity in a near future.

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: VA AT 20180119/0510Z FL050 EXTD SE OBS VA DTG:19/0530Z

Mayon (Luzon Island, Philippines): The new eruption of the volcano continues, but has been a bit less vigorous during the past days. This morning, the observatory reported that "quiet lava effusion from the new summit lava dome and lava collapse events" (small to moderate rock avalanches, sometimes turning into pyroclastic flows) characterized the activity during the past 24 hours.
The lava flow in the the Miisi Gully on the volcano's southern flank has advanced to approximately 3 km distance from the summit crater.

Kadovar (Northeast of New Guinea): The eruption of the volcano continues with intense, near-constant explosive activity, generating ash plumes that rise to approx. 10,000 ft (3 km).
According to the Rabaul Volcano Observatory (RVO), a short lava flow is descending on the island volcano's flank, but it is unclear whether it has reached the ocean. A seismometer has been installed on the island and is detecting ongoing tremor indicating the continued rise of magma. Emissions of sulfur dioxide also remain high, suggesting that magma supply remains significant.

Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: CONTINUOUS VA EMISSIONS TO FL100 OBS VA DTG:19/0715Z

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: ERUPTION REPORTED TO FL110 MOV WSW AT 19/0620Z.

Dukono (Halmahera): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: ERUPTION REPORTED TO FL050 MOV E AT 19/0310Z.

Great Sitkin (United States, Aleutian Islands): The recent unrest at the volcano, likely caused by a small intrusion of magma, has ended and the alert level was lowered to Green, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reported earlier.
"Earthquake activity at Great Sitkin Volcano has declined over the past two months to near background levels. No significant activity has been observed in satellite data during this time period and no steam plumes have been reported. AVO is thus lowering the Aviation Color Code
