Five active volcanoes in Indonesia are rumbling due to increased geophysical activity linked to recent earthquakes in the nearby Philippines.

Mounts Soputan, Lokon and Karangetang are active in North Sulawesi province, while Mount Gamalama is showing signs of unrest on Ternate Island and Mount Marapi rumbles on Sumatra.

All five volcanoes produced explosions within a week’s time that sent ash plumes soaring above the summits.

The overnight blast from Mount Soputan was heard by residents nearly 30 miles away.

New Activity/Unrest has also been reported at the following volcanos this week: Fuego, Guatemala | Little Sitkin, Aleutian Islands | Lokon-Empung, Sulawesi | Tangkubanparahu, Western Java (Indonesia)
