Akan (Hokkaido): (23 Nov) A new earthquake swarm is occurring at the Meakandake cone so JMA has raised the alert level to 2. A similar event occurred 3 years ago. The last eruption was in 2008.

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): (22 Nov) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: VA AT 20181122/2250Z FL050 EXTD S OBS VA DTG:22/2250Z

Krakatau (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): During our latest visit to the volcano from 19-23 Nov, we observed intense strombolian to vulcanian activity with strong ash emissions as well as an active lava flow. As of now, the volcano has calmed down to very low levels of activity during the past two days, after an intense phase during 17-19 November.
Accompanied by pulsating strombolian activity at the summit vent of Anak Krakatau, a new lava flow started to descend on the southern slope of the summit cone probably on 17 November evening, and reached the sea by 18 November evening (or earlier) when it was visible on the webcam. Probably, the peak of this activity occurred on that evening (18 Nov) including pulsating lava fountaining and high effusion rate. The sea entry was along a delta of about 150 m width.
