Pyroclastic flow at Sinabung volcano this morning
Sinabung (Sumatra, Indonesia): The eruption shows little variations as the volcano continues to effuse viscous magma at the summit vent. A part of that simply contributes to the growth of the lava dome and the viscous lava tongue that descends on the SE flank. Another part of the new magma collapses and produces rock-falls that turn into pyroclastic flows such as this morning (video): ...more [read all]

More ash emissions occurred this morning. Satellite images show an ash plume extending 40 nautical miles (approx 70 km) to the east, at altitudes of around 7,000 ft (2 km).

MODIS hot spot at Shishaldin volcano
The Alaska Volcano Observatory raised the Aviation Color Code of the volcano to YELLOW and the Alert Level to ADVISORY yesterday morning. Increased steaming was seen and satellite data showed a new thermal anomaly in the summit crater indicating a new hot surface, possibly from a new lava dome. The last activity at the volcano dates back to 2004.

Thermal image of the lava flow (Monte Cagliato webcam, INGV Catania)
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The recent eruptive episode, which could be called a mainly effusive paroxysm, seem to have more or less ended. Activity if still present (weak explosions at the NSEC and lava effusion from the fissure vent at its base) has decreased a lot. Visibility and weather are bad at the moment to have a more detailed picture. ...more [read all]

MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Reventador volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Activity at the volcano continues at moderate levels according to IG, but for the first time since a while, new ash emissions and incandescent material were reported. ...more

Current seismic recording from Tungurahua (RETU station, IGPEN)
A new eruptive phase has begun at the volcano. Since the early morning today, the seismic network detected an increase in earthquakes including signals of small explosions and long-period events and tremor typical for internal fluid movements (gasses and magma). ...more [read all]

The lava flow from Sinabung has reached the base of the mountain
Lava effusion continues at the volcano and pyroclastic flows occurred this morning. During the past 7-10 days, the growing lava dome has effused an impressive thick extrusion lobe that managed to form a massive, approx. 800 m long coherent lava flow reaching the base of the mountain. ...more [read all]

New explosions produced an ash plume this morning rising to 12,000 ft (3.6 km) and drifting 40 nautical miles to the southeast (VAAC Darwin).
