Tolbachik (Kamchatka): actividad eruptiva continúa, con flujos de lava fluida de la fisura sur todavía se emite. Sin embargo, también una muy lenta tendencia decreciente temblor es visible. KVERT no informes cambios significativos en la actividad en cualquiera de los otros volcanes de Kamchatka: extrusión de lava y edificio de cúpula siguen en Sheveluch y Kizimen. No hay datos sísmicos están disponibles en el momento de Karymski y Bezymianny, que también continúa construyendo lentamente un domo de lava. Gorely produce medianos niveles de sismicidad causada por movimientos fluidos y desgasificación fuerte.Yasur (Isla de Tanna, Vanuatu): nivel de actividad de explosivo (estromboliana) ha aumentado recientemente, el último boletín de geoamenazas indica hoy. El nivel de alerta se mantiene en 2, pero un aumento a 3 es posible en un futuro cercano. Riesgo elevado de impactos permanece cerca del cráter del volcán, como bombas han empezado a caer cerca de y en la zona de aparcamiento. Se emite un penacho de vapor y ceniza grueso de las rejillas de ventilación activas, y hay caída de ceniza en comunidades de empopada. ... [ It is recommended that all communities, visitors and travel agents take the current situation seriously (= not approach the crater rim).Pavlov (Alaska Peninsula, USA): The eruption might have ended already, or is at least pausing for the moment. Over the past few days, the eruptive and seismic activity have greatly declined, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reports.
There are no longer volcanic tremor or small explosions detected and satellite observations show no evidence of elevated surface temperatures, volcanic gas or ash emissions. There have been no visual observations from pilots or web cameras of any eruptive activity. "Consequently, the Aviation Color Code is being reduced to Yellow and the Volcano Alert Level to Advisory.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): Since yesterday morning's explosion, the volcano has been relatively quiet and only produced about 1 weak emission of mostly steam per hour.
No significant new earthquakes or tremor pulses have occurred.

Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia): Small earthquake swarms at shallow depth continue to plague the volcano. They suggest ongoing (small) magmatic intrusions.
The other 5 volcanoes in Colombia currently on alert have not shown significant variations in activity (Galeras: degassing, occasional small ash venting, Cumbal, Machin, Sotará: seismic unrest but no surface activity, Nevado del Huila: degassing/steaming).

Copahue (Chile/Argentina): The earthquake swarm has increased and continues today, but the volcano has not yet erupted. The earthquakes are occurring at very high frequency (130 per hour) and are mostly "hybrid", i.e. related to both rock-fracturing and fluid-movements within the volcanic edifice.
Evacuations in the area have progressed, but faced serious difficulties due to heavy snowfall and also because many residents in nearby villages are reluctant to leave their homes and live stock, especially in the municipalities of Butalelbùn (north side) and El Barco (south-west).

Nyiragongo (DRCongo): A significant SO2 plume is visible today on NOAA satellite data, suggesting continuing lava lake activity at the volcano. Unfortunately, security issues in the Goma-Virunga area continue to prevent us from organizing expeditions for the time being.
