Etna (Sicily, Italy): The fireworks on Etna seem to be coming to an end, although there is currently no visibility due to bad weather. Tremor has gradually decreased after another long, but rather weak paroxysm at the New SE crater (photos). Read more... read all

Strong activity at Suwanose-jima volcano (JMA webcam)
The volcano continues to produce frequent and intense strombolian explosions and produces a low level ash plume.

Elevated explosive activity continues at the remote volcano. Ash plumes up to 12,000 ft (3.6 km) altitude were spotted on satellite data by VAAC Darwin.

Medium sized pyroclastic flow reaching the lower slopes of Sinabung today (Image: Sutopo Purwo Nugroho/BNPB)
More and increasingly larger (and hence more dangerous) pyroclastic flows are being formed by the growing lava dome of the volcano. These "flows" are hot turbulent avalanches of hot blocks and ash in suspension with hot gas and air, that can travel down at great speed the slopes of the mountain, typically following the paths of valleys.

The new eruption that occurred at the volcano Sunday (29 Dec) morning at 10:50 am local time has so far been an isolated single explosion of vulcanian type (accumulated pressure ejecting the plug in the conduit). Current seismic activity is low, but more activity could follow. Read more... read all

Weak lava fountain at the New SE crater
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The 21st paroxysm at the New SE crater which started last evening is still going on although it has decreased a bit. Until now, the eruption has been rather weak with no sustained tall lava fountains as during most of the paroxysms. Instead, the New SE crater continues to produce loud, spectacular near-continuous strombolian-type jets (or low, pulsating fountains) and explosions of lava bubbles. The eruption so far: Read more... read all

Pyroclastic flow from Sinabung this evening (photo: #D_Lingga / Twitter)
The growing lava dome has started to produce (extremely dangerous) pyroclastic flows, as parts of the unstable mass of the viscous lava have now overtopped the crater the dome had been growing inside. Read more... read all
