Volcanos

Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity:

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): No significant changes in activity and no new lava flows have occurred. The tremor signal fluctuates between low to medium and high levels. Explosion signals are generally relatively weak.

Tolbachik (Kamchatka): KVERT reports no significant changes in the ongoing eruption. Tremor continues to be strong and lava still erupts from the southern fissure. The other erupting / restless volcanoes in Kamchatka also have not shown big changes in their activity: moderate seismicity suggests ongoing lava extrusion and dome building at Sheveluch and Kizimen.

Popocatépetl (Central Mexico): The volcano was producing a constant plume of steam and gas drifting to the southeast, interrupted by a few small to moderately sized ash explosions such as the attached image from yesterday morning. Glow remains visible at the crater at night.

Fuego (Guatemala): The eruption continues with the near-constant strombolian explosions reaching some 300 m above the crater and generating constant avalanches and rumbling sounds. An ash plume is rising to an altitude of 4600 m and moving south at a distance of 10 kilometers. On the western and southern flanks of the volcanic complex two lava flows are active and reach 1300 meters in the direction of the Trinidad canyon, and 200 m southwest towards the Taniluya canyon, respectively.

Tungurahua (Ecuador): The volcano has been producing continuous low-level ash emissions drifting W-NW, interrupted by explosions that generated cannon-shot sounds and rumblings of various intensity. Incandescent blocks were seen rolling down the upper flank for about 300 m, and light ash fall was reported from the areas of Penipe and El Manzano. Visual observations were mostly impossible due to cloud cover.
