Bagana (Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea): (5 Apr) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA TO FL070 EXT 25NM TO NE AT 05/2120Z.

Dukono (Halmahera): (5 Apr) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA OBS TO FL060 MOV TO NE AT 05/2230Z.

Bogoslof (United States, Aleutian Islands): No more activity has been detected at the volcano during the past 3 weeks (since 13 Mar) and therefore the alert level was lowered to "Yellow".
Most likely, the recent eruption which had started in Dec 2016 and consisted of a series of intermittent moderate to very strong explosions, which profoundly changed the island's topography by creating a new bay (the crater area), has come to an end.

Cleveland (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) lowered the alert level as no recent activity had been detected at the volcano:
"No activity has been observed at Cleveland Volcano since an explosion was detected in seismic and infrasound data on March 24. Recent satellite images show no significant changes to the summit lava dome or crater since late February to early March. Based on seismic levels remaining low and no observations of continued activity, AVO is lowering the Aviation Color Code to YELLOW and the Volcano Alert Level to ADVISORY." (AVO)

Sabancaya (Peru): (6 Apr) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Buenos Aires (VAAC) issued the following report: PUFF EMISSIONS

Nevados de Chillán (Central Chile): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Buenos Aires (VAAC) issued the following report: SPORADIC EMISSIONS OBS VA DTG:06/1135Z
