At Piton de La Fournaise, the eruption continues, with variations in the tremor and surface activity.
The slight inflation (swelling) of the entire terminal cone of the volcano since the beginning of August (<1 cm since the beginning of the eruption) seems to disappear.
On the morning of August 18th, weather conditions are better and we can see, on the webcam of Piton de Bert, a degassing at the eruptive site and at various points of the lava flow.
The activity of the Nevados of Chillan complex is always fluctuating; It was marked on the 17th of August in the early evening by an explosion accompanied by a plume well loaded with ashes, which could not rise due to the winds.
The volcano is in Amarilla alert.

The Phivolcs increased the alert level of the Kanlaon to 1 / abnormal. A prohibited area of 4 km radius, known as a permanent danger zone, is in effect.
The seismicity of the volcano is marked by 244 volcanic earthquakes since the end of June; This increase in seismicity could be followed by sudden phreatic eruptions at the summit crater, although no degassing or steaming activity has been noticed since the beginning of the year at this summit crater.
The building has remained in inflation since December 2015.
These parameters indicate changes in the volcanic processes under the volcano, which may be related to changes in hydrothermal activity or magmatic intrusion.
