The RSN reports, in its weekly report, that a small phreatic eruption took place on 18 June in Poas, reported by the National Park guards.
Water accumulation continues in the main crater due to rainfall; however, in the past few days, the level is falling by evaporation.
An exit of gas is observed at the level of the mouth A, although it is practically completely covered by the waters ... in case of phreatic eruption, splashes of water and sediments could occur.

A small hydrothermal eruption occurred in Rotorua / New Zealand, reported by Brad Scott Volcanology.
The site has experienced several heating episodes over the past two decades. The cliff along the east side is warming up, killing trees and shrubs. A pool of mud bursts every 20 to 50 seconds.
