In Kilauea, after the explosive episode of May 17 in the morning, a significant degassing marked the crater Overlook, drifting to the southwest.

In the eastern rift zone, the crevasses continued to open and widen, vertically and horizontally, during the last 24 hours ... in question, the magmatic intrusion into the rift zone.

The activity in the East rift zone is still present: active spattering still characterizes the crack 17, but the lava flow is no longer progressing, only small amounts of pasty lava flow exit from the lava front. The lava seems to accumulate inside the same casting, that has expanded a little.

In addition, the cracks 18, 19 and 20 reactivated and a new fissure - the 21 ° - opened between the fissure 7 and 3.

An area of ​​40 to 85 m² in width slumped gently parallel to the crack line between Highway 130 and Lapina Gardens; this depression is being filled by pahoehoe flows coming from fissure 20 and 21.

At Popocatépetl, in addition to the usual activity characterized on May 17 by 99 low intensity exhalations, accompanied by steam and gas, the Cenapred reports an explosion at 12:51, accompanied by a plume of ashes which is mounted at 2,500 meters in height, then dispersed to a southern sector.

During the night, incandescence was observed, increasing at the time of exhalations.

The level of alert remains unchanged: Amarillo fase 2, and it is recalled not to access the volcano, the risk of falling ballistic fragments, and mudslides in drainages being possible in case of heavy rains.

At Sinabung, we can observe a white to gray degassing, of low pressure, at a height of 700 meters above the summit.

Seismicity is characterized by 3 explosion earthquakes, tremor of constant amplitude, a low frequency earthquake and some tectonic earthquakes.
