Shishaldin (United States, Aleutian Islands): Eruptive activity at the volcano continues.

Thermal image of the upper Sciara del Fuoco of Stromboli
Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): (30 Oct) The effusive eruption that had started on 7 August seems to be ending: the lava flow emitted from the 650 m vent at the eastern base of the summit crater complex has decreased a lot two days ago and seems to have almost (or completely) stopped by today. ...more [read all]

County of Hawaii media image of lava flow through Pahoa village on Oct 28, 2014.
Kilauea (Hawai'i): According to the latest report, the lava flow front is now 280 m/yds from Pahoa Village Road, averaging about 10 m/yds per hour. Lava has already consumed a few small agricultural structures, and there are perhaps 10-15 residences in its direct path on both sides of the road. Residents have been placed on an "evacuation notice" without being forced to leave, so that they can see what happens to their property and hopefully bring some emotional closure to the ordeal. ...more [read all]

The June 27th lava flow crossed Apaʻa Street / Cemetery Road at 3:50 AM, HST, Saturday morning, October 25, 2014. In this photo, which was taken at about 9 AM Saturday, the flow is moving from right to left, with burning asphalt visible along it's NW margin. A utility pole, far right, was surrounded by lava but remained standing at the time of the photo. The hope is that the protective insulation and cinder/cement barrier around the pole will prevent it from burning through. (image: HVO)
Kilauea (Hawai'i): Lava has crossed the Apaʻa Street / Cemetery Road near the driveway to the Pāhoa cemetery and is now spreading mainly over open grassland. ...more [read all]
