Bulusan (Luzon Island, Philippines): (10 Jun) A sudden eruption occurred this morning (at 11:35 local time). An explosion generated an ash plume that rose about 2000 m above the volcano's summit and drifted northwest, causing light ash falls in nearby downwind areas.
According to PHILVOLCS, the eruption preceded by a seismic swarm with more than 100 small earthquakes and lasted 5 minutes. The eruption itself was only steam-driven - no magma itself has reached the surface,- and caused by explosion of over-pressurized and over-heated fluids from the volcano's strongly developed hydrothermal system.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): (10 Jun) The eruption of the volcano continues with little changes: viscous magma is accumulating at the summit lava dome and forms over-spilling lobes on the southeastern slope that are prone to collapse. Trapped gasses produce occasional vertical explosions with ash plumes that reach 1-2 km height mostly (s. image).
Our correspondent Andi who is on location and talked with staff from the volcano observatory warned that the mass of new lava emplaced in unstable positions has again reached critical values, and might be producing new pyroclastic flows soon:
