Ash plume from Fuego yesterday morning with lava fountains
The paroxysm at Fuego, which had reached its peak phase during the night of Thu-Fri (28-29 July) has ended. Starting from the early afternoon yesterday (local time), activity gradually decreased and the volcano's activity has by now returned to intermittent smaller strombolian explosions.

Images of Cleveland's summit crater and lava dome on 26 July 2016. Top image is infrared (warmer colors = hotter temperatures) (image: John Lyons / AVO)
A recent overflight by staff of the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) showed a small lava dome and active fumaroles inside the volcano's summit crater. Incandescence could be seen at the vent of the dome, indicating that it is still active even though no explosions or other eruptive activity have taken place recently. Read more...

Map of today's active volcanoes
Shiveluch (Kamchatka): The effusive and explosive activity at the volcano continue at currently relatively low levels. Occasional small avalanches occur from the active dome, but little or no glow can be seen on night-time webcam imagery, suggesting that the effusion rate is at the lower end at the moment.

Number of earthquakes under Piton de la Fournaise volcano over the past weeks(OVPF)
Signs that a new eruption of the volcano in the near future could be in the making have been increasing. In a bulletin yesterday, the volcano observatory (OVPF) reported elevated seismic activity, deformation and gas emissions that are consistent with the rise of magma to shallow depths.

Eruption at Colima volcano yesterday evening
Intermittent explosions continue at the volcano from time to time, but with comparably low intensity. No or little glow is visible from the volcano's summit at night, suggesting that the magma column is relatively deep inside the conduit currently.

Small ash emission from Nevado del Ruiz yesterday evening (INGEOMINAS webcam)
Sporadic, usually small ash emissions continue to occur from time to time (every few days) such as last night (s. image attached). These explosions are likely phreatic in nature, i.e. driven by steam explosions inside the currently unstable hydrothermal system heated by an underlying magma intrusion at shallow depth.

Seismic signal from Pacaya's PCG station showing degassing and spattering / strombolian explosions going on (INSIVUMEH)
Mild strombolian activity continues from the Mackenney crater. According to a recent report, this activity ejected glowing material to 75 m above the crater and weak incandescence could be observed from the crater at night.
Fri, 29 Jul 2016, 08:41
SVERT reported that a thermal anomaly over Snow, a volcano of Chirpoi, was detected in satellite images during 18 and 20-24 July. Steam-and-gas emissions were visible drifting SW on 16 July and may have contained minor amounts of ash. Steam-and-gas emissions during 22-24 July drifted as far as 90 km N. The Aviation Color Code remained at Yellow. Read more...
