Image captured from the webcam at Colima volcano, showing the powerful explosion on the early morning of 27 July.

Colima's Volcano of Fire had a spectacular, predawn explosion Wednesday 27 of July, shooting incandescent rock, ash and steam nearly 9,000 feet into the air over western Mexico. The eruption sent ash raining down on nearby communities, but officials had no reports of major damage.

Fuego volcano had a small explosive eruption on 17 July that produced an ash plume reaching a height of 3.5-4 km above the crater and producing small pyroclastic flows that traveled down Santa Teresa and Taniluyá ravines.

No significant changes have been recorded at Popocatepetl volcano. Weak emission of ash and steam continue to occur at a rate of a few per day, lending a touch of romance to the snow-capped volcano.

The explosive activity at Shiveluch volcano is increasing and the alert level has been breifly raised to its highest state of RED between 8 and 9 July. Moderate explosions took place during the past week, some of which produced ash plumes of up to 7 km a.s.l. Seismicity at the volcano is increasing.

The eruption at Colima seems to be decreasing in intensity. During the last week, only weaker explosions, typically 2-3 per day, have been taking place at Colima. However, lahars are remobilizing large amounts of the recent ash deposits and frequently decend ravines especially on the S and E flank of Colima.

As the USGS reports, a strong explosion occurred at Anatahan on 3 July at 16h46 local time. It produced a SSE-drifting plume reaching a height of ~12.2 km  (~40,000 ft) a.s.l. Volcanic fog (vog) was reported to have drifted over the southern parts of the islands of Saipan and Tinian. During the rest of the last week, steam and ash emissions were at lower levels.
