Etna (Sicily, Italy): The decreasing trend in surface and earthquake activity on and around Etna continues and there is little to nothing left of the vigorous flank eruption that had started on Christmas Eve (24 Dec 2018). However, the volcano is far from quiet and there are indications that more and potentially more dangerous activity could be in the making.
A tell-tale sign that the flank eruption could only be a prelude is that magma continues to stand high inside the volcano's conduit: glow and intense gas and steam emissions are visible from the Bocca Nuova, producing a tall plume rising vertically into the evening sky.

Krakatoa (Sunda Strait, Indonesia): The violent explosive activity caused by magma-water interaction continues at the volcano, from the area where the summit cone collapsed on 22 Dec and now exposes the vent to sea water.
A video of an overflight earlier today shows powerful steam explosions of this so-called Surtseyan activity, generating dense steam and ash clouds, often ejected as "fingers" of larger ejected rock fragments with training steam behind, as well as billowing surges that shoot horizontally above the water.
