Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): (29 Sep) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20160928/2330Z FL160 EXTD NE OBS VA DTG:29/0000Z

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): (29 Sep) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20160928/2240Z FL120 EXTD E OBS VA DTG:28/2340Z
Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): (28 Sep) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA OBS TO FL080 EXT 35NM TO SE AT 28/2130Z.
Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The eruption continues with little changes, although it has been a bit calmer during the past few weeks. Small to moderately sized explosions and small pyroclastic flows occur on average one or few times a day.
This morning, the observatory reported an explosion with a plume that rose 1500 m from the summit.
Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: CVGHM REPORT VA TO FL130 MOV TO E AT 29/0106Z.
Rinjani (Lombok): A powerful, sudden vulcanian explosion occurred at the volcano Tuesday afternoon (14:45 local time). It originated from the Barujari cinder cone inside the Rinjani caldera and generated a dense column of ash and ejected rock fragments that reached a height of 2000 m.
Part of the eruption column collapsed into pyroclastic flows that reached short distances around the cone (less than 1000 m runout length). The ash plume itself drifted quickly southwest, forcing a temporary closure of Lombok's international airport and some flight disruptions (cancellations), in particular on the popular routes between Australia and Bali.

Bromo (East Java, Indonesia): The activity at the volcano has again picked up during the past week. An increase of seismic activity and inflation (swelling of the edifice probably caused by magma intrusion) triggered PVMBG to raise the alert status to the second highest level 3 ("siaga", alert).
At the surface, Bromo shows increased degassing and light ash venting only, generating a plume that rose to 50-600 m height, but more activity could be in the making.
Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA OBS TO FL090 EXT TO E AT 28/2330Z.
Dukono (Halmahera): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: CVGHM REPORT VA TO FL070 MOV TO S AT 19/0529Z
Kilauea (Hawai'i): The activity at the volcano continues with no significant changes. The recent trend of deflation is still ongoing and the lava lake in the summit crater has dropped significantly (yesterday: 24 m below the rim) and is no longer in direct view from the Jagger Museum lookout.
The 61G lava flow continues to reach the ocean at Kamokuna.
A set of galleries from our recent trip to the volcano showing the various aspects of the ongoing eruption is now available at this page.
Colima (Western Mexico): A phase of new lava dome growth has started at the volcano. While the new dome, first discovered in Feb this year, had been only very weakly active over most of the past month, its rate of growth has drastically increased during the past days. The dome itself has become visible from areas at the southern feet of the volcano since 27 Sep.
Caused by an apparent pulse of new rising fresh magma inside the conduit, the surface activity at the volcano has increased as well: More frequent and stronger explosions, some generating small pyroclastic flows and incandescent rockfalls have been observed. At the moment, the volcano produces near-constant ash venting and explosions as well as small avalanches:

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: VA EM TO FL240
Fuego (Guatemala): Another short-lived paroxysm took place at the volcano during the past 2 days, but has now ended and the volcano is back to its typical activity with regular, mild to moderate strombolian explosions, currently at rates of 4-6 per hour.
During the peak of the 13th such episode this year, the volcano produced pulsating lava fountains, fed lava flows on the SE flank into Las Lajas and on the W flank into the Santa Teresa drainage that reached 1500 m and 2000 m length, respectively. Small pyroclastic flows were caused by collapses of the lava flow.
A significant ash plume was emitted that drifted west and affected nearby downwind areas with moderate ash falls, including the town of San Pedro Yepocapa.
Turrialba (Costa Rica): Activity remains elevated at the volcano. Long phases of ash emissions of fluctuating intensity, accompanied by tremor, continue to ´be observed. Usually, the generated ash plumes drift into westerly directions into the Valle Central where light ash falls occur.
The volcano observatory reports that the latest eruptive phase which started 4 days ago still continues; bad weather prevents direct observation, but infrared imagery shows episodes with the ejection of incandescent fragments.
Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: VA EM TO FL200
