Shiveluch (Kamchatka): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 15000 ft (4600 m) altitude or flight level 150 and is moving at 10 kts in SE direction.
The full report is as follows: VA EMISSIONS CONTINUING OBS VA DTG:24/1120Z to 15000 ft (4600 m)

Raikoke (Central Kuriles): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Anchorage warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 38000 ft (11600 m) altitude or flight level 380 and is moving at 25 kts in NNE direction.
The full report is as follows: VA FROM 20190621/1810Z ERUPTION to 38000 ft (11600 m)
...24 Jun:
Activity at the volcano continues: ash emissions are visible on satellite imagery, but they are less intense than the explosions during 21-22 June.
The large ash and gas plume from this initial phase is still swirling around and hovering above the northern Pacific, in a vast area between Kamchatka and Alaska. Its maximum altitude is estimated at up to 40,000 ft (12 km) a.s.l. Distorted and dissected by winds from an important low-pressure system (cyclone), the ash and gas cloud now consists actually of several plumes, some with impressive spiral shapes hundreds of km long.
VAAC Anchorage regularly issues updates and corresponding warning to aircraft in the region.

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): (24 Jun) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: ERUPTED AT 20190624/0227Z FL090 STNR OBS VA DTG:24/0220Z

Ibu (Halmahera, Indonesia): (23 Jun) Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 5000 ft (1500 m) altitude or flight level 050 .
The full report is as follows: DISCRETE ERUPTION OF VA TO FL050 OBS AT 23/2250Z MOV ESE to 5000 ft (1500 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 5 kts in S direction.
The full report is as follows: CONTIUOUS VA EMISSION TO FL070 EXT TO S. to 7000 ft (2100 m)

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): (24 Jun) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: VA EMS HAS DISP

Sabancaya (Peru): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Buenos Aires warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 26000 ft (7900 m) altitude or flight level 260 and is moving at 5 kts in SE direction.
The full report is as follows: continuous ash emissions to 26000 ft (7900 m)

Ubinas (Peru): The volcano began emitting small amounts of ash (most likely phreatic) today at 7am local time- the first activity in two years. The ash and gas plume has been rising to only a few hundred metres above the crater so far.

The alert level has been raised to yellow. Seismicity has risen above background levels with signals indicating rising fluids and authorities expect more activity in the coming days; the volcano may be in the process of entering a new, "full" magmatic eruptive phase (similar to its fellow Peruvian volcano Sabancaya's current eruption), the third since reactivation in 2006.
