Etna (Sicily, Italy): Strombolian activity began again today at the New SE crater. Accompanied by rising tremor, this activity is increasing at the moment.

The current pattern is very similar to many past episodes which often culminated in violent explosive (lava fountaining) and effusive (lava flow) paroxysms and could very well build up to a new one, maybe similar to the previous one during 1-2 Feb this year.
Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): The volcano remains in a very active state, with up to 10 or more vulcanian-type explosions occurring per day (see list).
Ash plumes from these eruptions have been rising to 9-15,000 ft (2.7-4.5 km) altitude.
Villarrica (Central Chile): Mild activity continues - a small lava lake remains active inside the vent of the inner summit crater producing steaming, small strombolian explosions, and related ash emissions.
A lenticular cloud over the summit this morning was beautifully illuminated by the lava glow.
