Dukono (Halmahera): (6 Jun) Strong ash emissions continue from the volcano. Based on satellite data, VAAC Darwin reported that ash plume rose to 8,000 ft (2.4 km) altitude and extended 70 km NW this morning.

Sunset Crater (Arizona): Recent rumors about steaming from Sunset crater, and speculation of a possible reawakening of the volcano are most likely based on false or fake information. The volcano, one of Arziona's youngest, last erupted about 1000 years ago, but shows currently no signs of reawakening.
Of course, future eruptions are an entirely possible scenario - however, there's no indication this is about to occur right now.

Fuego (Guatemala): (6 Jun) Another strong eruptive phase with the effusion of lava flows and elevated explosive activity has been occurring at the volcano since yesterday.
Two active lava flows are descending the Cenizas and Trinidad ravines on the SSW and S sides of the volcano. Strombolian explosions create a steam and ash plume that rises to approx. 5 km altitude and drifts 15 km W and NW.

Barren Island (Indian Ocean): (6 Jun) A steam and ash plume at estimated 10,000 ft (3 km) altitude and extending 35 km to the east from the volcano was detected yesterday on MTSAT satellite imagery (VAAC Darwin).
A moderately strong hot spot is visible at the volcano as well, suggesting that the eruptive phase that had started in April might still be going on at a low level.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The alert level of the volcano was again raised from "siaga" to "awas", the highest on the Indonesian 1-4 scale. The reason is a currently elevated risk of possibly larger pyroclastic flows, that could be triggered by collapse of the increasing volume of the viscous lava lobe emplaced on the upper SE flank. ...
