...5 Oct:
Activity at the volcano's summit continues with little changes: the new intra-crater cone inside Voragina (Central Crater) produces strombolian explosions with ejections of lava bombs and small ash puffs occasionally seen on the webcam.
Team member Marco Fulle visited the volcano recently during one of ours "Volcano Special" tours and observed that bombs ejected from the cone sometimes reach Bocca Nuova crater. Access to the summit craters is currently closed.

Mauna Loa (Big Island, Hawai'i): During the past week, approximately 40 small-magnitude earthquakes (all smaller than M2.5) were detected beneath the upper elevations of Mauna Loa. Most of the earthquakes occurred at shallow to intermediate depths of less than 10 km (~6 miles) below ground level.
Fumarole temperature and gas concentrations at the Sulphur Cone monitoring site on the Southwest Rift Zone remain stable, but are slightly elevated from measurements from several weeks ago due to repositioning and servicing of instrument sensors during maintenance in mid-September by HVO field crews.
