Marapi (Western Sumatra, Indonesia): A small eruption occurred this morning (9 am local time), producing an ash plume that rose about 350 m according to local news.
Marapi has been showing increased activity since August 2011. VSI keeps the volcano at level 2 alert (out of 4) and recommends not to approach the summit within a radius of 3 km, as stronger eruptions could occur any time.

Santa María / Santiaguito (Guatemala): Activity has been elevated. The effusion rate of the Caliente dome is high enough to produce constant block avalanches from the eastern rim. Explosive activity has been weak with ash plumes reaching 500-700 m height drifting into southerly directions.

Pacaya (Guatemala): Strombolian activity from the Mackenney crater continued during the past days with fluctuating intensity. Ejections of bombs reached about 50 m above the crater yesterday, INSIVUMEH reports.

Fuego (Guatemala): A new lava flow towards the Taniluya canyon (S side) started on 11 Nov and reached a length of 500 m this morning. Explosive activity at the summit has remained stable with occasional weak to moderate explosions ejecting ash plumes to up to 700 m height and producing sometimes loud shock waves.

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Strombolian activity at the NSEC ceased during the night, and the lava flows from the last paroxysm are no longer active today. Tremor has returned to low levels. ... [more]
Current tremor amplitude (ECPNZ station, INGV Catania)
Monday, Nov 11, 2013
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The awaited new paroxysm of Etna's NEW SE crater started last night and is still in full progress. Unfortunately, a snow storm above the summit area prevents detailed observations, but judging from the seismic signal, this eruption is unusually long and intense (and still growing at the time of updating). Ash fall has been reported from villages to the E/NE (Zafferana, Milo etc), where the plume is carried to by strong Libeccio winds. ... [more]
Current tremor amplitude (ECPNZ station, INGV Catania)
Sunday, Nov 10, 2013
Etna (Sicily, Italy): Strombolian explosions (sometimes relatively large) from the New SE crater continued with little changes. Tremor levels show a no indication whether or not a new paroxysm is going to occur soon. A very slow rising trend is visible over the past week. ... [more]
Explsion from Etna's New SE crater this afternoon
Saturday, Nov 09, 2013
Etna (Sicily, Italy): A relatively large explosion has occurred some minutes ago. Volcanic tremor still doesn't show a clear trend. ... [more]
