The explosive activity of Stromboli has increased since the beginning of August at the level of the central craters / south-west and the cones of the NE sector, with explosions rich in ash and scoria at 200 meters height above the terrace; these materials accumulate in the crater zone and on the Sciara del Fuoco, where they produce frequent rolling events.
The effusive activity in the SW sector shows an increase in the feed rate which has now reached values of about 1.2 m³ / s, and corresponds to an increase in SO2 levels.
All measured parameters suggest a new phase of feed rate increase and the arrival at the surface of a gas-rich magma coinciding with phases of sharp increases in both peak explosive activity and ratios. effusion.

Steam comes out of the main pond at the bottom of Haluma 'uma' u / Kilauea, observable in this photo of Sunday, August 4. Two smaller areas of accumulated water are present a short distance east of this location.
These images compare a normal photo (left) with a thermal image (right) collected on Sunday, August 4th. The white lines of the normal photo delimit the area shown on the thermal image. Several hot fumaroles are present on the slopes of Halema'uma 'uu, the warmest being about 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit). The water basin at the bottom of the crater was about 70 degrees Celsius (158 degrees Fahrenheit).
However, no change in volcanic status of Kilauea, always Normal / green aviation code

In Chile, activity of Villarica in recent weeks is related to a partial obstruction of the upper volcanic conduct, involving minor but almost permanent explosions, generated by the dynamics of the lava lake.
This Strombolian activity causes ballistic ejections of spatters and bombs.
As a result, the Sernageomin has raised the level of technical alert at Amarilla / behavioral change of volcanic activity, and to adapt the area of assignment to a radius of 500 meters around the crater.
