Fogo (Cape Verde): Lava effusion continues from the vents, while explosive activity there has more or less ended.
Lava is fed through tubes to active breakouts at different locations inside the Cha caldera. One area with active breakouts remains the former locations of Portela-Bangaeira villages, where by now almost all buildings have disappeared.
Another flow, particularly active in the past days, has been traveling to the west, towards the Cova Tina area, since early December. Meeting the caldera wall, it has now spit into two main lobes and advances over previous farmland. The most advanced front had a length of more than 2 km yesterday from the vents.
The eruption continues its destructive work: the lava effusion from the vents remains at moderate intensity and feeds various active flows that spread in the Cha Caldera.
While the foremost front that had destroyed Portela and Bangaeira two weeks ago is no longer active, several lateral breakouts continue to spread in the caldera.
Whatever has so far been spared or only partially covered of buildings from the two villages, is being gradually covered by the flows.
Shiveluch (Kamchatka): A moderately strong explosive eruption occurred Saturday night.
An ash plume rose to estimated 22,000 ft (6.5 km) altitude and bright glow was visible on webcam imagery, likely from incandescent material deposited during a dome collapse event.
Daikoku (Volcano Islands): A team of scientists from Oregon State University and NOAA found evidence that the submarine volcano, whose top is about 300 m below sea level, is currently erupting (or at least has been very recently).
The expedition “Submarine Ring of Fire 2014 – Ironman” found this evidence in form of two observations: very strong plumes coming from the top of the seamount were detected that show characteristics that can only be explained by an eruption. During a previous survey in 2006, only hydrothermal activity, including the spectacular discovery of a liquid sulfur pond, were seen at the volcano.
Second, a comparison of bathymetric data shows that new craters have formed, something which also is difficult to explain other than by an eruption.
Gamalama (Halmahera): Intermittent ash emissions continue from the volcano. As it is unknown whether the eruption will dwindle down or increase, an exclusion zone of 2.5 km radius around the summit is in place.
All persons that had been missing immediately after the eruption have been found, fortunately there were no victims, only 4 injured (by falling during escape).
Ash fall has been causing small problems in Ternate where over 45,000 dust masks were distributed. The airport is still closed.
Kilauea (Hawai’i): The lava flow advance has further slowed down, giving Pahoa some hope it might not reach it or at least not as soon as feared.
“Since yesterday ,the leading edge of the active flow had advanced about 78 m since Saturday morning flight, and is currently about 0.6 miles (1.0 km) up slope from the intersection of Highway 130 and Pāhoa Village Rd. This number reflects an overall decrease of advancement rate during the past several days.” (HVO)
The lava flow front that has been progressing towards the Pāhoa Marketplace, is currently stalled at approx. 600 m distance, to the relief of Pahoa. However, several breakouts are active in several areas behind the inactive front.
Pavlof (Alaska Peninsula, USA): A small eruption Saturday night was reported by a pilot. Alaska Volcano Observatory has no indications of significant activity, but maintains alert level yellow.
