Etna (Sicily, Italy): The effusive eruption from the new fissure vent at the southern base of the SE crater complex continues into its 3rd week of activity with little changes since it started early on 16 March.
The lava flow remains active, but at low effusion rate. It has formed a wide channel of 'a'a lava that passes between the Monte Supino and the 2002 craters (Monti Barbagallo), where it forms several overlapping branches. From 2800 m elevation, it has roofed itself over into a tube, but reappears at the surface further downslope. Its most advanced front is now at around 2300 m elevation on the SW flank.

Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): The activity of the volcano has increased during the past days, with explosive activity at the summit producing intermittent, but relatively intense steam and ash plumes.
Based on satellite and webcam data, this new eruptive phase began on or shortly before 28 March. KVERT also raised the aviation alert level to yellow that day, and a day later to orange.
Today, Tokyo VAAC reported a plume to 25,000 ft (7.5 km) altitude, i.e. rising about 3000 m above the summit, and drifting into NE directions.

Fuego (Guatemala): A new paroxysm (short-but intense eruptive phase with lava fountaining), the 3rd in 2017 so far, has occurred over the weekend and ended a short time ago.
Activity has gradually increased during the past days, with explosions becoming stronger and more frequent. Since 31 March, strombolian-type explosions, with ejections up to 300 m above the summit crater, have become near-constant, producing abundant rock falls mainly to the east and southeast upper flanks of the volcano. The peak phase with pulsating lava fountains and lava flows began in the morning of 1 April (local time) and lasted approx. 16 hours, before sharpy dropping after past midnight.

Nevados de Chillán (Central Chile): The volcano continues to produce infrequent explosions, probably phreatic in nature, from time to time. After two weeks of quiet, new ash emissions occurred in two pulses from the volcano yesterday morning.
The first one started from around 12:35 local time and lasted about 10 minutes. It was relatively intense and generated an ash plume that dispersed towards the SSE. A smaller emission occurred at 13:55 local time, but was much smaller.

Erta Ale (Danakil depression, Ethiopia): The activity remains very elevated at the volcano. Since the start of the (still ongoing) flank eruption in January, a second lava lake has formed at the flank eruption site and a growing lava field is active about 2-3 km northeast of it.
According to ground information and fresh high-resolution satellite imagery analyzed by Culture Volcan, the eruption continues to be significant and occurs from both the summit (lava lake in the southern pit crater) AND the fissure eruption site on the southern rift axis.
