Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The volcano experienced a brief phase of elevated activity in the form of near-continuous lava spattering from the northern vents that had started Sunday (30 May) evening around 20:50 local time and lasted approx. 12 hours.
By 11 am on Monday morning, activity had returned to its normal state, with intermittent spattering and small to moderate strombolian explosions from several vents.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Since the latest lava fountaining phase at the New SE crater early on Sunday 30 May 2021, the volcano has remained more or less calm.
The so-far latest paroxysm began to announce itself 03:10 local time, when volcanic tremor began to rise, followed by the onset of strombolian activity at around 05:45. This activity rapidly increased and turned into lava fountaining by 06:30 which lasted about an hour and produced an ash plume that rose to estimated 6500 m altitude.

Fagradalsfjall (Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland): The eruption continues without significant changes, although overall, its intensity seemed to have been decreasing during the past week.
Episodes of lava fountaining had been becoming more rare and weaker, and the eruption style has for most time been purely effusive: lava erupted from the vents directly is going directly into lava tubes to feed more distant locations of the slowly growing flow field, or into shorter near-vent surface flows.

Nevados de Chillán (Central Chile): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Buenos Aires (VAAC) issued the following report: SPORADIC WEAK EMISSIONS

Nyiragongo (DRCongo): No new eruption has occurred so far, fortunately, and with each day passing, its likelihood probably becomes a bit less. However, both seismic and deformation activity of the ground in the area of Goma and Lake Kivuare continue, and while on a decreasing trend, remain significant. During yesterday, 71 quakes were reported in the area.
It can only be hoped that the suspected (and likely) magma intrusion underneath will simply stop and eventually cool without breaking towards the surface and cause an eruption.
