The eruption of February 19 at Sinabung opened the supply duct. Emissions of ashes and gases followed one another yesterday, with plumes ranging from 100 to 1,000 meters above the summit.
This activity was crowned by a strong eruption this 25 February at 20h30 loc., during 618 seconds; it was accompanied by a plume of about 3,800 meters, travelled by lightning, and scattered of ashes to the southwest.

Note that the eruption of the past week has pulverized a large part of the dome, leaving a wall ESE side ... this configuration can allow to return to pyroclastic flows to the south as in 2014.

Villarica - evolution of the thermal signature between 5 and 25 February 2018 - incandescence on 25.02.2018 - Doc. Povi
At Villarica, after two months of calm, the night glow returned.
The POVI reports a lava well of 15 meters by 9 meters, and gas outlets with characteristics similar to those emerging from airplane turbines (volcanic jetting) ... identical to those reported from 9 to 12 December 2014, and which had left erosive traces inside the volcano's chimney.
