The Sinabung / Sumatra is currently presenting a relatively peaceful appearance, but the summit dome is still growing, with low night-time glow. New pyroclastic flows are to be feared.

On Whakaari White Island, the lake of the Bay of Plenty volcano has completely disappeared.
About 3 meters deep, it started to fall on September 24, leaving only a few small ponds two days later.
During a visit of a team of GNS on September 30, volcanologists observed another change: the majority of gas come from a single vent to the back of the crater, so stronger and louder than during the degassing by multiple vents. Although impressive, this evaporation of the lake did not change the alert level, which remains at 1 / aviation code yellow.
