This volcano is monitored by a seismic system in real time, which motivated the AVO to change the volcanic alert to Advisory and the aviation code to Yellow. No correspondence in the regional network of infra-sonic data, nor of observations by satellite

At Merapi, in central Java, the observatory noticed an avalanche of incandescent blocks on June 2nd at 22:45 WIB. Its imprint on the seismogram is of maximum amplitude. 65 mm and a duration of 110 sec. She traveled about 1,100 meters towards Kali Gendol.
The PVMBG provides seismicity information: 2 avalanche earthquakes, 24 eruption earthquakes, 1 breath earthquake, 1 hybrid earthquake, and a shallow volcanic earthquake.
The alert level remains at 2 / waspasa, since May 21, 2018.
Heavy rains on the Fuego generated weak to moderate lahars in Las Lajas, Seca and El Jute (Guacalate and Achiguate tributaries).
They consisted of pasty materials, metric blocks, branches and tree trunks and topped with steam columns because of the high temperature of the components. A strong smell of sulfur accompanies them.

The situation does not evolve in Sangay, in continuous eruption, as evidenced by the image Sentinel 2 June 1.
The activity remains, as at the end of May, explosive at the central and effusive crater at the Ñuñurcu dome.
Although it does not pose much danger to humans in this remote region of Ecuador, it impacts the biodiversity of the National Park, which is home to mountain tapirs, giant otters, Andean rock cocks and vultures.
