Mexicos Popocatepetl started it’s long awaited new eruptive phase after a dome extrusion. As I wrote a week ago the eruption was expected to be small, and so was the case. Everything points to a VEI-1 or VEI-2 eruption. The only real danger currently is lahars, but since the glacier ontop of the volcano has diminished quite a lot during the last decade any lahar will be smaller then previous lahars. Popocatepetl will most likely continue to erupt in phases, alternating between dome extrusions and ashy explosions like today.

Mount Turrialba could not stay out of the fray and had an increase in activity today with vigorous steaming, an episode the finnished with an ash/steam-explosion.

Zavodovski is one of those volcanic Islands you quite often never have heard about unless you are an avid sailing fanatic. It last erupted at 1908 according to Lloyd’s of London. Nothing beats them on things on Islands. The volcano on the Island is named Mount Curry, to my amazement I found that it had another name too, Mount Asphyxia. No doubt to the large output of SO2 from the volcano, also the large amount of bird poop on the Island would not help… Be that as it may, according to NASA it is now vigorously erupting. I will get back to this splendidly interesting volcano as soon as I can.
