Zhupanovsky (Kamchatka, Russia): (13 Jun) The eruption at the volcano that was initially reported by a pilot who observed a 6 km ash plume continues with smaller ash emissions.
While the initial report left some doubts about the eruption, confirmation was soon after provided by the presence of a SO2 plume, ash deposits visible on satellite imagery and photos taken on location.
The attached photo shows ongoing ash emissions the morning of 7 June following the main explosion. Two secondary flank vents producing steam plumes and dark streaks on the lower left flank of the volcano representing mud flows that were generated by lava-snow interaction are visible.

San Miguel (El Salvador): Seismic activity, in particular volcanic tremor levels, have sharply increased since 9 June and reached the so-far highest values measured since the beginning of this crisis. A new eruption of the Chaparrastique volcano is becoming more and more likely.
The volcano's visible activity continues to consist in pulsating gas and minor ash emissions.
Civil protection is trying to evacuate more and more people living close to the volcano, but many residents are hesitating or refusing to leave their homes. Gas masks are being distributed.
