Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The volcano continues to erupt with little changes overall during the past months. An explosion at the lava dome today at 13:35 local time produced an ash plume that rose approx. 1100 m above the summit.

Kilauea (Hawai'i): The newest lava flows on Kilauea continue to descend the Pulama pali and reach the coastal plain, where the blocky a'a transforms into the smoother pahoehoe lava.
Our friend Canadian filmmaker Michael Dalton took a series of new images.

Pavlof (Alaska Peninsula, USA): (2 Jul) The alert level of the volcano was raised (yellow on the USGS 4 color scale) as a new phase of activity could have started.
Seismic activity increased this morning and minor steam emissions were observed from the summit crater.
AVO raised the Aviation Color Code to Yellow and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY.
