Piton de la Fournaise , La Réunion :
A priori, the activity dropped a notch . It is quite usual: one day the lava fountains are always spectacular and very aerial, on the second day those fountains turn into rivers of lava and there is often the creation of one or more craters (already visible).
The tremor has actually declined, mouths became extinct and flowst in grattons extend over a wide area.
Activity is nevertheless always visible, but it will be cold and there may still be many people … For the more adventurous, the sunrise is spectacular (but you have to get up early …).
The eruption continues and always worth a visit. It is clearly visible from the Pas de Bellecombe or from the Piton Partage . There will certainly be many people, but we can hope that the establishment of the shuttles will prevent the mess from last night.
This morning the webcam of the Piton Partage not show any incandescent.

Manam, Papouasie Nouvelle-Guinée :
Authorities on Papua New Guinea are warning people on the island of Manam to take precautions and remain vigilant after a volcanic eruption.
The country’s geohazards department says the eruption occured just after 11am local time on Friday on the island in Madang province, with an ash plume being blown by winds towards the mainland.
The department says the town of Bogia has been coated in ash, and residents are being told to avoid venturing into the four main valleys.
It says it was unable to receive seismic data of the eruption due to techinical problems with its transmission equipment, and details of the eruption’s impacts are still unclear.
The department says the eruption has opened the vent’s plumbing system and possible ongoing eruptions of variable magnitudes are possible.
In November 2004, a major eruption killed five people and forced the emergency evacuation of over 9000 residents. Ten years on, many of them are still living in temporary housing.
