The activity from the Mackenney crater continues. White and blue fumaroles, mainly composed of water vapor rise and drifts southwest. During low light, incandescence from strombolian-type explosions were observed with ejecta being thrown at heights of 50, 75 and 100 meters above the crater. Two lava flows are currently present, one 250 meters long, observed on the west flank and the other southwest 100 meters long. Seismic stations recorded tremor associated with the rise of magma and gases.

INSIVUMEH report strombolian activity continues at the Mackenney crater. Incandescent material exploded 5-25 m above the crater with a white to blue degassing plume rising and drifting to the south. The north-west lava flow continues to advance. Seismic stations register constant tremor which INSIVUMEH notes is associated with the rise of magma and gases.

17 days volcano trekking
: This is one of our most exciting volcano tours! Halmahera, North Sulawesi and the Sangihe Islands are not only very scenic and interesting as well as nearly unspoiled by tourism, but also home to some of the country's most active (and often erupting) volcanoes, inclduing Dukono, Ibu, Lokon, Soputan and Karangetang.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
Current activity of Bardarbunga volcano, Iceland
: An intense seismic crisis started at Bárdarbunga volcano on 16 August 2014 and is continuing at the time of writing (23 Aug). It may or may not lead to a volcanic eruption, possibly under the Vatnajökull ice cap.
