Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): (31 Oct) A small amount of ash began to be visible in gas-and-steam emissions at Klyuchevskoy beginning at 10:20 on 24 October, prompting Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) to raise the Aviation Color Code to Yellow (the second lowest level on a four-color scale).
Later that day video images showed an ash plume rising as high as 6 km (19,700 ft) altitude and drifting 40 km northeast. The Aviation Color Code was raised to Orange.

Ebeko (Paramushir Island): Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 10000 ft (3000 m) altitude or flight level 100 and is moving at 15 kts in NE direction.
The full report is as follows: POSS ERUPTION OBS AT 20191031/0800Z FL100 EXTD NE OBS VA DTG:31/0830Z to 10000 ft (3000 m)

Aso (central Kyushu, Japan): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: ACTIVITY CONT. VA AT 20191031/1200Z FL070 EXTD SE OBS VA DTG:31/1150Z

Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Tokyo (VAAC) issued the following report: EXPLODED AT 20191031/1708Z OVER FL070 STNR OBS VA DTG:31/1700Z

Sangeang Api (Indonesia): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: WEAK EMISSIONS TO FL090 MOV W, LAST OBS AT 31/0600Z.

Dukono (Halmahera): Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) issued the following report: VA OBS TO FL080 MOV E AT 31/1420Z.

White Island (New Zealand): Volcanic unrest continues at Whakaari/White Island and some monitored parameters show an increase in activity, with a level of uncertainty about what this means.
GeoNet observed over the last several months a change in the amount of SO2 gas output and level of volcanic tremor. Both show an increasing trend and are at the highest level since 2016. Volcanic tremor can occur for many reasons, including the movement of gas through the volcano, changes in the geothermal system and even surface activity (geysering or ash emissions).

Pavlof (Alaska Peninsula, USA): AVO reported that after a small explosion at Pavlof was recorded on 19 October and before 25 October clear satellite and webcam views did not show any deposits associated with the event. Weakly elevated surface temperatures and a small steam plume were occasionally visible.
No other activity was detected during 26-29 October. The Aviation Color Code remained at Yellow and the Volcano Alert Level remained at Advisory.

Shishaldin (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): Seismicity and infrasound signals were consistent with low level eruptive activity and a steam plume was persistent.
By 23 October lava had filled the crater and during 23-24 October overflowed the north crater rim. A 200 m long lava flow on the north flank melted snow and caused a lahar which traveled 2.9 km and stopped at about 1,230 m elevation. A smaller lava flows caused a 1 km long lahar to descend the northeast flank. Spatter accumulated around the crater rim and melted snow.
