Azuma (Honshu): On 17 June JMA lowered the alert level for Azumayama to 1 (the lowest level on a 5-level scale), noting that deformation and elevated seismicity recorded in May had stabilized and decreased, respectively.

Ibu (Halmahera, Indonesia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: DISCRETE ERUPTIONS TO FL060, LAST OBS AT 21/0230Z MOV NE
...20 Jun:
Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 6000 ft (1800 m) altitude or flight level 060 .
The full report is as follows: VA TO FL060 MOV N OBS VA DTG:20/2330Z to 6000 ft (1800 m)

Dukono (Halmahera): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 7000 ft (2100 m) altitude or flight level 070 and is moving at 10 kts in N direction.
The full report is as follows: CONTINUOUS VA EMISSION TO FL070 OBS VA DTG:21/1500Z to 7000 ft (2100 m)
...21 Jun:
Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: CONTINUOUS VA TO FL070 EXT NE EST VA DTG:21/0455Z

Colima (Western Mexico): Intermittent steam-and-gas emissions as well as small explosions continue from the volcano's summit crater, mainly from the NE side of the crater.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): Activity at the volcano has not changed significantly during the past months. The volcano observatory reported mild degassing, infrequent weak explosions and constant weak to moderate avalanches on the SE flank of the Caliente dome.
The latter indicates that effusion of viscous lava continues at small to moderate pace.

Pacaya (Guatemala): The activity at the volcano remains stable: near-continuous mild strombolian activity from the Mackenney summit crater, ejecting glowing spatter to 5-15 m above the rim.
Lava effusion continues to feed a small lava flow on the NE flank of the cone.

Fuego (Guatemala): During the past months, the activity has been relatively steady and intense, characterized by frequent strombolian to vulcanian-type explosions at rates of 10-20 per hour typically.
Incandescent material is often ejected to several 100 m height and produces small glowing avalanches on the upper slopes. During 15-18 June, occasional larger avalanches were observed to travel long distances (reaching vegetated areas) down Seca (W), Taniluyá (SW), Ceniza (SSW), Trinidad (S), El Jute (SE), Las Lajas (SE), and Honda ravines.

Sabancaya (Peru): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Buenos Aires warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 30000 ft (9100 m) altitude or flight level 300 and is moving at 10 kts in E direction.
