Shiveluch (Kamchatka): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 20000 ft (6100 m) altitude or flight level 200 and is moving at 15 kts in SW direction.
The full report is as follows: VA EMISSIONS CONTINUING OBS VA DTG:24/1120Z to 20000 ft (6100 m)

Manam (Papua New Guinea): Another violent eruptive phase (a paroxysm) is occurring at the volcano. It is already the second such eruption this year after the last one had ended on 11 Jan. VAAC Darwin reported ash plumes rising as high as 55,000 ft (approx. 17 km), which marks it as a very significant event.
The eruption is characterized by intense lava fountaining generating a tall ash plume. It has already lasted more than 24 hours, residents reported earlier today. Whether there are also lava flows and/or pyroclastic flows (avalanches of hot ashes and debris) is unclear.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): (24 Jan) The volcano has been particularly active recently. A series of very strong explosions occurred on Tuesday (22 Jan 2019) which destroyed the most recent lava dome that had accumulated in the summit crater.
The strongest was a powerful vulcanian-type eruption at 21:07 local time, which ejected incandescent material to more than 2 km height and distance from the crater and produced an ash plume that rose approx. 4 km above the summit. The ejecta showered the entire upper cone of the volcano with glowing bombs, in up to 2 km distance.

The full report is as follows: INTERMITTENT VA EMS to 22000 ft (6700 m)

Fuego (Guatemala): The activity at the volcano has been increasing over the past days. It seems likely that another paroxysm is about to occur which could produce lava flows, tall ash plumes and pyroclastic flows.
A few days ago, the observatory reported that strombolian-type explosions had been moderate to strong in size, ejecting ash plumes up to 5000 m altitude, which drifted up to 12 km distance before dissipating.
