Fuego (Guatemala): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington (VAAC) issued the following report: VA EM OBS IN STLT.

Poas (Costa Rica): OVSICORI-UNA reported that during 16-26 September sulfur dioxide emissions from Poás drifted W and NE, causing a sulfur odor in Alajuela, Heredia, San José, and Cartago. Acidic rain was recorded at the official’s house in the Poás Volcano National Park (PNVP) on 23 September and at Universidad Nacional Costa Rica (UNA) in Heredia on 26 September.
At 05:40 local time on 30 September a five-minute-long phreatic eruption ejected sediment, and produced a plume that rose 2 km above the crater rim and drifted SW. Ashfall and a sulfur odor was reported in Trojas de Sarchi and Grecia. Officials closed the PNVP because of the eruption and ongoing elevated seismicity; the park remained closed the next day.

Copahue (Chile/Argentina): (3 Oct) On 30 September OVDAS-SERNAGEOMIN, ONEMI, and SEGEMAR reported that three long-period (LP) earthquakes with notable magnitudes were located about 5.8 km NE of Copahue’s El Agrio Crater. In addition, abundant LP and volcano-tectonic (VT) signals with relatively lower magnitudes were also located in the same area. Some of the events were felt by residents of Caviahue (10 km E) and Copahue 7 km NE) in Argentina.
SERNAGEOMIN raised the Alert Level to Orange (second highest level on a four-color scale) and ONEMI updated the Yellow Alert (the middle level on a three-color scale) for residents, noting a restriction for entering a 5-km radius from El Agrio Crater. The seismic network recorded a local M 3.1 VT earthquake at 2340 on 30 September, and a local M 3.7 VT event at 0628 on 1 October. The report also noted that 14 lower-energy events (largest was M 2.4) were recorded.
