Kilauea , Hawai :

This is « THE » spot of the moment …

19°25’16 » N 155°17’13 » W,
Summit Elevation 4091 ft (1247 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE


Activity Summary:
Kilauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and from its East Rift Zone. The 61G lava flow continues to flow into the sea at Kamokuna and produce scattered breakouts on the coastal plain and pali. The flow poses no threat to nearby communities. The lava lake at Halema’uma’u Crater continues to be active; its surface is about 33.5 m (110 ft) below the crater rim..


Summit Observations:
The lava lake within the Halema’uma’u Overlook crater remains active; its surface level remained about the same as yesterday at 33.5 m (110 ft) below the crater rim. Inflationary tilt of a summit DI event slowed over the past 24 hours. Seismicity rates were normal, with tremor fluctuations associated with lava lake spattering. The average daily summit sulfur dioxide emission rate ranged from 400 to 7,500 metric tons/day over the past week.


Pu’u ‘O’o Observations:
No significant changes are visible on webcam images, with persistent glow continuing at long-term sources within the crater. Seismicity and tilt records also showed no significant changes in the past day. The sulfur dioxide emission rate from all East Rift Zone vents was about 400 metric tons/day when measured on August 10.

Lava Flow Observations:
The 61G lava flow, extending southeast of Pu’u ‘O’o on Kīlauea’s south flank, continued to be active and to enter the sea at multiple places near Kamokuna (labeled ‘ocean entry’ on HVO maps). Scattered breakouts continue predominantly on the makai (seaward) portion of the coastal plain and on the pali. A small delta collapse occurred Tuesday afternoon which darkened the plume for a short time.

Popocatepetl , Mexico :

August 13, 11:30 h (August 13, 16:30 GMT)

In the last 24 hours the seismic records of the surveillance system at Popocatépetl volcano registered 66 low-intensity exhalations. Also, was recorded one explosion, at 19:11 pm , this event generated a column of about 2.5 km high with ash content moderate, toward west-northwest. Due to this explosion, members of Civil Protection of Ameca Ameca, reported ashfall in the communities Ozumba and Atlauta.

Today, at 00:34 was generated other explosion, this event generated material incandescent ejection on the flanks of the volcano.
During this morning were recorded short episodes of exhalations, accounting for a total of 40 minutes. During these events only increased incandescence above the crater .

Also, in this period, were recorded intermittent episodes of low amplitude harmonic tremor, in total accounted for 125 minutes.
At 08:02 am, was recorded another explosion that produced a lower column 1 km high with low ash content .
At the time of this report is observed the continuous emission of steam and gas .
Other monitoring parameters remain unchanged

CENAPRED emphasizes that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments .
This type of activity is included within the scenarios Volcanic Traffic Light Yellow Phase 2.

Klyuchevskoy , Kamchatka :

56.06 N, 160.64 E;
Elevation 15580 ft (4750 m)
Aviation Color Code is ORANGE

Explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 26,240-32,800 ft (8-10 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.

klyuchevskoyExplosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues: there are bursts of volcanic bombs above the summit crater and above the cinder cone into Apakhonchich chute, and strong gas-steam activity of two volcanic centers with emission of different amounts of ash, and the effusing of lava flows along Apakhonchich chute at the south-eastern flank of the volcano. According to satellite data by KVERT, a large bright thermal anomaly was observed at the area of the volcano all week, ash plumes drifted for about 370 km to the southeast and west from the volcano on 09 and 11 August.
