Raung (East Java): (16 Sep) PVMBG reported that small amounts of ash, generated by the minor explosion, occurred yesterday.

White Island (New Zealand): (16 Sep) GeoNet reported that volcanologists did a three gas flight observations and one observation flight over the last 6 weeks.

The vent system above the magma appears to be open, allowing the gas to escape relatively unobstructed. During fine weather conditions this will generate moderate to large gas-steam plumes above the island.
