Worldwide Volcano News and Updates:

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): Activity has continued to decrease and there have been no new significant explosions. The number of steam-gas emissions (which sometimes contain also small amounts of ash) has dropped from an average of 5 per hour to only 2 per hour last night. Read more... read all

As the seismic signal suggested, a strong increase in activity occurred yesterday evening and culminated in the effusion of a lava flow from the Mackenney crater which lasted about 2 hours. Read more... read all

Current seismic recording from Popocatépetl
Chirinkotan (Northern Kuriles): Based on satellite imagery, the volcanic activity (evidenced by a significant degassing plume) was no longer visible after 25 May and has probably ended or is pausing at the moment. Read more... read all

Hazard map of Copahue and threatened villages (graphics created by El Mercurio newspaper)
The seismic crisis continues, but has decreased in intensity. An eruption in the near future still remains a likely scenario, SERNAGEOMIN scientists emphazise, as this decrease in energy could be temporary. It is impossible to predict whether this is a question of days or weeks, or even if an eruption actually will occur. Read more... read all

After a few days of relatively calmness, the volcano erupted at least 3 times today already. It seems to have begun another cycle of increased explosion frequency, which seem typically to last a few days.
Thu, 30 May 2013, 13:23
Activity has remained generally low, with occasional small to medium-sized ash explosions and small avalanches from the Caliente dome.

Current seismic signal from Fuego volcano (FG3 station, INSIVUMEH)
Activity remains weak. As it's rainy season, the volcano is mostly in clouds, but the seismogram and INSIVUMEH reports indicate occasional small explosions, some rockfalls and degassing events.
Thu, 30 May 2013, 13:19
Today's seismic recording from Pacaya (PCG station, INSIVUMEH)
The volcano has been mostly hidden in clouds, but strombolian (and perhaps effusive) activity continues as can be seen from glow at night and noises from explosions and degassing. A strong increase of seismic activity seems to have started a few hours ago as suggested by the current seismogram.
