Ebeko (Paramushir Island): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo recorded continuous ash emissions that reached 10,000 ft (3,048 m) altitude and extending about 3 km to the south-east of the volcano.

Nishino-shima (Volcano Islands, Japan): The effusive-explosive eruption at the volcano continues at elevated levels.
While no fresh direct observations are available from the extremely remote island, satellite data show ongoing strong ash emissions to 12,000 ft (3.6 km) altitude as well as a large SO2 plume originating from the volcano, which means that the magma output rate remains high.

Raung (East Java): The alert level for the volcano was raised to "orange", as an increase of volcano-tectonic earthquakes have been recorded since 16 July.
As we reported in the last update first eruption since August 2015 occurred on 16 July when minor plume of ash rose to an altitude of 10,982 ft (3,347 m).

Dukono (Halmahera): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 8000 ft (2400 m) altitude or flight level 080 and is moving at 15 kts in W direction.
The full report is as follows: CONTINUOUS VA EMISSION TO FL080, EXT W AT 21/1940Z to 8000 ft (2400 m)

Yasur (Tanna Island, Vanuatu): (20 Jul) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Wellington (VAAC) issued the following report: NO EVIDENCE OF FURTHER ERUPTION OBS VA DTG:20/2237Z

Pacaya (Guatemala): (21 Jul) Effusive-explosive activity of the volcano continues at high levels associated with lava flows in various directions and constant strombolian explosions in Mackenney summit crater. The same activity was recorded during 2006 and 2010, 2014 and during July-August 2019 as the magma was rising within the volcano through the eruptive fissures. Due to high level of activity it is expected higher effusion rate around the cone and explosions can become stronger.
During 14-20 July, when no lava flows were observed, INSIVUMEH recorded a new lava flows that started to descend from northwestern cone in front of Cerro Chino towards the southeast direction yesterday morning.
