Katla (Southern Iceland): Seismic activity has increased at the volcano. A magnitude 4.3 earthquake occurred under the volcano on 26 Jan at shallow depth beneath the summit caldera covered by the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
Strong explosion at Colima volcano yesterday morning (22:03 local time on 26 Jan)
Scientists now believe that the increased seismic activity indicates that the volcano is more likely to erupt in the near to medium term future compared to some years ago, but it is impossible to make any precise predictions.
Icelandic authorities are increasing their surveillance of the volcano, which is one of the country's largest and most active, with potentially devastating eruptions due to the hazard of catastrophic glacial floods.
Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: CVGHM REPORT ERUPTION TO FL150 AT 28/1735Z.
Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: DISCRETE ERPUTION WITH ASH TO FL140 OBS VA DTG:28/0415Z
Colima (Western Mexico): The activity at the volcano remains relatively high. Explosions of various sizes occur at irregular intervals (typically few hours).
The largest generate spectacular eruption columns reaching several kilometer height with ballistic impacts all over the cone and sometimes small pyroclastic flows by collapsing material of the eruption column.
Part of our team is on its way to location and will hopefully be able to report more in detail soon.
