Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): (5 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20161105/0600Z FL200 EXTD NE OBS VA DTG:05/0640Z

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): (5 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20161105/0010Z FL170 EXTD N OBS VA DTG:05/0030Z

Suwanose-jima (Ryukyu Islands): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: ERUPTED AT 20161105/0855Z FL050 EXTD E OBS VA DTG:05/0900Z

Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): (5 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA PLUME LAST OBS TO FL070 EXT W AT 04/0040Z.

Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): According to our friend filmmaker Michael Dalton who's been on location, the youngest lava dome and its lobe "are gone".
The series of collapses which generated the impressively many small to moderate pyroclastic flows earlier this week has apparently removed most or all of the unstable portions of the viscous lava masses that had accumulated. Depending on the volcano's effusion rate, generally low, it might take a while until a new dome is "ready" to spill over the crater rim again.

Dukono (Halmahera): (4 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA OBS TO FL070 EXT 40NM TO NW AT 04/2230Z OBS VA DTG:04/2300Z

Kilauea (Hawai'i): No significant changes have occurred over the past weeks. Currently, the summit lava lake inside Halema'uma'u crater stands relatively high at 12 m below the floor of the main crater and is clearly visible from the Jagger museum viewpoint.
Magma continues to arrive into the eastern rift zone as well: at Pu'u 'O'o crater, it keeps the small lava pond in the western pit crater active and feeds the 61g lava flow. The latter is almost entirely inside lava tubes (i.e. underground) and reaches the ocean at the eastern Kamokuna sea entry. The lava delta continues to grow, but has developed significant cracks recently, suggesting parts of it might collapse soon. The western entry has in the meantime stopped.

Cleveland (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) lowered the alert level to "yellow" after no activity has been detected at the volcano since its last eruption on 24 Oct (a small explosion).
According to AVO, "recent satellite views indicate that the lava dome emplaced in late May was mostly destroyed in the explosion and has been replaced with a deep pit within the summit crater."

Turrialba (Costa Rica): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: EM CONT WITH PSBL VA

Copahue (Chile/Argentina): (5 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Buenos Aires (VAAC) issued the following report: CONTINUOUS EMISSION OF STEAM AND VA OBS VA DTG:05/0438Z
