Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The activity at the volcano remains stable, fluctuating between low to moderate levels. Strombolian explosions occur at rates of few minutes interval on average from several vents in the crater terrace.
Most explosions occur from the the NE and the westernmost vent, ejecting incandescent material to typically 80-150 m height. The latter vent seems to be particularly active recently, with frequent ash-rich strombolian-type explosions such as in the images attached taken a few minutes ago.

Shiveluch (Kamchatka): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 13000 ft (4000 m) altitude or flight level 130 and is moving at 10 kts in E direction.
The full report is as follows: VA EMISSIONS CONTINUING OBS VA DTG:19/1720Z to 13000 ft (4000 m)
