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. ...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. ...more [read all]

Steam and ash plume from Yasur on 8 May 2013 and hazard map of Yasur volcano and explanation of status levels (Geohazards)
Tolbachik (Kamchatka): Eruptive activity continues, with fluid lava flows from the southern fissure being still emitted. However, also a very slow trend of decreasing tremor is visible. ...more [read all]

Ash emission yesterday at 18:03 and 18:04 (local time) seen through the web cam in Piraña. (INGEOMINAS)
Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): An explosion early today at 05:03 h (local time) ejected incandescent fragments to 1.5 km distance from the crater on the northeastern slope and generated a column of ash that reached more than 2 km height above the crater and was dispersed to the SW. ...more [read all]

Seismic recording from Telica this morning (TELN station, INETER)
Gamkonora (Halmahera): Increased earthquake activity has triggered an eruption alert by VSI, who raised the volcano's status to 3 ("Siaga", "warning") out of 4 this morning. Indonesian volcanologists reported that the degassing plume from the summit crater of the volcano has turned dark, which suggests the presence of ash (probably phreatic in origin) since 25 May. ...more [read all]

Etna (Sicily, Italy): Etna today is free of clouds, but strong winds with gusts up to 70 km/h speed prevail. No further significant earthquakes occurred. The only activity remains degassing, and occasional small explosions, not visible, deep inside Bocca Nuova, based on seismic observations (OPEC). ...more [read all]

Explosion from the NE vent of Stromboli on the INGV webcam
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): Activity continues at moderately elevated levels. Spectacular explosions especially from the NE crater can often be seen on the webcam as well. ...more [read all]

The plume of Chirinkotan volcano this morning (NASA/MODIS via Blog Culture Volcan)
Chirinkotan (Northern Kuriles): The remote volcano in the northern Kuriles is probably in eruption, the latest SVERT report and satellite images suggest. A plume of gas and steam, and possibly some minor amounts ash was seen with the MODIS sensor onboard the NASA Terra satellite this morning. ...more [read all]

Seismic trace of the 3.5 earthquake today (ESVO station, INGV Catania)
Etna (Sicily, Italy): A shallow magnitude 3.5 earthquake occurred under the town of Zafferana, about 10 km east of the summit area this afternoon. ...more [read all]

Strombolian eruption from the NE vent (21 May 2013)
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): Explosive activity at Stromboli is currently at normal to moderately high levels, but the magma column has obviously dropped considerably compared to previous weeks, as there are no longer lava overflows. We observed the volcano during the past days and found a total of 8 active vents in the crater terrace, out of which 4 were showing their typical different strombolian activity: ...more [read all]
