On Ambae, photos and thermal images, taken during two observation flights over the weekend, show that the activity of the volcano is confined to the crater area ... the possibility of a large eruption affecting all the island thus appears less likely.
"Explosions are observed every 8 to 10 seconds, propelling bombs at 50-100 meters above the crater, and there are two small lava flows on the island towards the lake," says NZ volcanologist Brad Scott. The photos testify of a delta enlarging the island side lava flows.

Evacuations are continuing: the number of evacuees is about 5,000 at present, and more than 4,000 inhabitants are still on the island; more detailed information on this situation on RNZ - link.
Due to the pollution of waters by the eruption, drinking water needs have become crucial for thousands of people.

At Agung, an overflight on October 1 still shows no signs of eruption.
Seismicity remains high, with 1 October, 587 deep VA volcanic earthquakes, 306 superficial volcanic earthquakes VB, and 32 local tectonic earthquakes; this 2 October, between 0 and 6h local, the count is 128 earthquakes VA, 94 earthquakes VB and 5 local tectonic earthquakes.
All recommendations remain in effect.

The activity continues in Sinabung, where a white plume surmounts the summit, varying between 50 and 800 m high, intersected by eruptions.
The seismic network has recorded 4 eruptions over the last 24 hours, accompanied by plumes of gray-white ash reaching 1,500 - 2,000 meters above the crater.
An info on the social networks must state a rash this 1st October at 15:17 local, accompanied by a plume of 3,600 meters in height, and a pyroclastic flow of 1,000 meters long south side,
An explosion occurred on 30 September at 22:57 local time at Popocatépetl; it was accompanied by incandescent projections falling on the flanks for a maximum of 800 meters in relation to the crater, and a plume with a moderate ash content rising to 2,500 meters before dispersing northeastwards and then southeast .
All or part of the dome set up in September is likely to have exploded,
The alert level remains unchanged.
