Etna (Sicily, Italy): After last Saturday's paroxysm, the volcano has not remained completely calm, but produces ash emissions from the New SE crater from time to time.
Volcanic tremor is at low to moderate levels, something that can change any time.

La Palma (Canary Islands (Spain)): Following the surge of activity yesterday, the eruption has been a bit calmer today, relatively speaking. Lava fountaining and lava flow effusion continue with impressive force at the vent.
The eruption column was still rising to 3000 m today, but the prevailing trade wind regime dissipates it to the SW, which is why the airport has been operational at least most of the time. In downwind areas near the vents, however, thick ash fall is increasingly a problem, threatening roofs etc to collapse, destroying farmland, gardens and making ways impassable.
