Etna is a constantly changing volcano: in addition to ash emissions, corresponding to old pulverized material, by the newest crater of the southeast, the main change is to the crater northeast, the highest point of the volcano at 3,324 meters.
Obstructed for 18 months, it reopened. The bottom of the crater collapsed, forming a semicircular mouth that continues to emit a dense plume of gas.
The Northeast crater was flown over last week by a drone, whose images reveal the precarious stability of the inner walls of the crater NE, subject to sudden and unpredictable collapses; his approach must be done with particular attention.

The eruption continues at the Agung on November 29, with the emission of a double plume on one hand rich in steam, the other richer in ash, amounting between 2,000 and 4,000 meters.
Following a change of wind direction, the ash cloud resumed a south-southeast direction.
The closure of Ngurah Rai International Airport was extended until November 30th at 7:00 am (confirmed by the Indonesian Embassy in Paris), although the VONA was reduced to Orange on 28.11 at 23:49.

At Sinabung, plume and cloud co-pyroclastic succeed each other this November 28; a pyroclastic episode concerning the east-southeast flank was observed over 3,000 meters.

In the Ryuku volcanic arc to the south of Japan, the Kagoshima observatory reports a sharp increase in volcanic earthquakes and gas emissions at Kuchinoerabujima.
On November 27th, the flow of sulfur dioxide doubled compared to the previous day, with 200 tons / day. On November 28, a white plume was observed rising 700 meters above the Shindake crater, located in the center of the island.
For the record, an explosive eruption on May 29, 2015 generated a pyroclastic flow that reached the coast and caused a total evacuation of the island
