Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Suwanose-jima (Ryukyu Islands): Strombolian activity has picked up from the Ontake crater during the past week. Glow from the eruptions can often be seen from neighbouring Toshima island.

Santiaguito (Guatemala): Activity has picked up during the past days: a series of partial collapses from the Caliente lava dome has been generating small to moderately large (up to 4-5 km long) pyroclastic flows, the volcano observatory reported in its latest special bulletin.

Fuego (Guatemala): A phase of increased activity with lava flow effusion occurred during the past days, but has subsided by now again. Starting 27 Sep, two lava flows started to descend on the southern and western sides of the volcano, while strombolian explosions were larger than usual in size.
