Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): (30 Aug) The effusive eruption continues with little changes and no signs of ending soon. The effusion rate is fluctuating, but elevated and the vent feeds two flows that travel down the Sciara in two channels.
Weak explosions sometimes occur from the summit vents.

Bardarbunga (Iceland): (30 Aug) The still intense earthquake swarm and deformation continues with little variation. No further eruptive activity has occurred since yesterday's "blitz" eruption.
The intrusion has not changed position and is focused on a 15 km long stretch both under and outside the Dyngjujökull glacier NE of Bardarbunga. Earthquake activity also continues under the volcano's caldera with the strongest today so far being a magnitude 5.4 event this morning.

White Island (New Zealand): A swarm of small earthquakes was detected on Thursday near White Island, New Zealand scientists monitoring the volcano reported. The largest event is magnitude 3.3 and was located within 5km of the island.
All of the earthquakes appear to be within 5 km of White Island. The size of the locatable events ranges from magnitude 2.5 to 3.3 and all are shallow (less than 10 km depth).

View onto the upper part of the lava flow early on the 10th of August, showing the trajectory of the lava from the vent down onto and across the plateau before it flows down the Sciara del Fuoco. Only the vent at the origin and the overflow from the plateau are visible from the 400 m webcams.
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): (25 Aug) After fluctuating and unstable effusive activity during the last few days, the vent seems to have once again increased its magma effusion rate and triggered a new pathway for the lava to flow down the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco. ... read all

Bárdarbunga (Iceland): The latest offical briefing from the Icelandic Met Office confirms that seismic activity continues to migrate northwards with earthquakes below Bárðarbunga becoming weaker. An eruption in the Bárdarbunga caldera is therefore at present considered to be less likely. ... read all
