Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The activity at the volcano has continued to decreased overall during the past weeks, and is now described as "medium":
It is characterized by frequent strombolian-type explosions of small to moderate size mainly from the NE and occasionally also from the central-western vents, with an average of 18 per hour.
Tremor and degassing levels have been comparably low and no other significant variations of monitored parameters have been found recently.

Campi Flegrei (Phlegrean Fields) (Italy): No significant variations in monitored activity have been occurring at the Campi Flegrei recently, according to the most recent report of the volcanological observatory (OV).
A small earthquake swarm occurred on 14 Nov in the Solfatara-Pisciarelli area, comprising 38 tiny quakes of magnitudes not above 0.4.

...21 Nov:
Explosive activity from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions that reached 7,000-8,000 ft (2,100-2,300 m) altitude and drifted into various directions, but most often N direction.

Shishaldin (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): (21 Nov) The Alaska Volcano Observatory reported that the eruption at the volcano continued at variable levels during 13-19 November.
Seismicity increased during 13-14 November and elevated surface temperatures were visible in satellite and webcam data. Minor ash emissions were visible and likely resulting from spatter cone collapses. Lava and debris flows had not advanced since 8 November; lava flows had traveled as far as 1.2 km and a large branched network of debris flows extended at least 5.5 km northeast.

Cleveland (Aleutian Islands, Alaska): (21 Nov) The Alaska Volcano Observatory lowered the Volcano Alert Level for Cleveland to Advisory and the Aviation Color Code to Yellow on 15 November, noting that new satellite data and reanalysis of previous data over the past week showed that lava effusion likely had not begun on 8 November.
Regional seismic and infrasound data showed no evidence of eruptive activity during 8-19 November; weakly-to-moderately elevated surface temperatures were sometimes identified in satellite images and steam plumes were sometimes visible in webcam images.
