Volcanic Activity Summary: An ash-producing eruption started at 14:05 AKST (23:05 UTC) today and is continuing as recorded by seismic data on nearby islands, by lightning, and as seen in recent satellite images.

We are raising the Aviation Color Code to RED and the Alert Level to WARNING.

AVO has no ground-based volcano monitoring equipment on Bogoslof volcano. We continue to monitor satellite images, information from the Worldwide Lightning Location Network pertaining to volcanic-cloud lightning, and data from seismic and infrasound instruments on other islands for indications of volcanic activity. At present, these observations should allow timely detection of additional explosive events.

Popocatepetl , Mexico:

26 December 11:00 (1700 GMT 26 December)

In the last 24 hours, through the seismic records of the Popocatepetl volcano monitoring system, 27 exhalations of low intensity accompanied by steam and gas have been identified.
All night long, a glow could be seen above the crater, which increased during some of the exhalations.



At the time of this report a slight but continuous emission of steam and gas in the south-west direction is observed.
The other monitoring parameters remain unchanged.

CENAPRED asks not to approach the volcano and in particular the crater.
The Volcanic Volcanic Semaphore of Popocatepetl Volcano is located in Amarillo Phase 2.

Sabancaya , Peru :

27 DECEMBER 2016. The Sabancaya volcano, in the Arequipa region of Peru, made a comeback overnight, after a series of explosions sent ash and smoke up into air. The ash and smoke travelled as far as 3,500 metres into the sky, covering a radius of a little over 30 kilometres in distance, according to the country’s Volcanic Risk Management Technical-Scientific Committee.



The neighbouring areas of Cabanaconde, Tapay, Lari, Madrigal, Pinchollo, Maca and parts of Achoma were affected. An earlier explosion by the same was registered late last Friday when Sabancaya sent a plume of smoke as far as 2,500 metres into the sky.
