Location of quakes during the past 2 weeks (IGN)
El Hierro (Canary Islands, Spain): Small earthquakes (mostly below magnitude 2) continue to occur frequently (10-20 per day), mostly under the central part of the island. Right now, this activity seems to be picking up, but it is too early to see if this evolves into another swarm. ...more [read all]

Current seismic recording from Veniaminof (VNHG station, AVO)
The eruption at the intracaldera cone of Veniaminof Volcano continues. The seismicity over the past 24 hours has been characterized by discreet episodic bursts of tremor, likely associated with lava effusion and minor ash emission. ...more

SO2 plume from Ambrym volcano (NOAA)
A large SO2 plume is drifting NW from the volcano, where at least two lava lakes in the Benbow and Marum craters remain active.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013, 09:36
SO2 plume from Popocatépetl yesterday (NOAA)
Activity remains low with few (less than 1 per hour) weak emissions of steam and gas. Abundant SO2 output and glow at the summit indicate continuing lava extrusion.

Pacaya volcano last evening (INSIVUMEH)
Weak strombolian activity and the effusion of lava flows continues. The activity can be seen from the capital and the coast.
Seismic signal from Pacaya today (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
Fri, 30 Aug 2013, 09:20
INSIVUMEH reports strong rockfall activity from the steep-sided lava flows, suggesting that several of them are being alimented at the moment. Strong degassing produces a steam column rising up to about 1 km above the dome.
Fri, 30 Aug 2013, 09:15
The lava flows were no longer active yesterday morning. Activity consisted in weak to moderate strombolian explosions with incandescent material projected to up to 150 m above the crater, and ash plumes of a few 100 m height.
