In Kilauea, an increase in seismic activity and changes in soil deformation patterns at the top of the volcano began to occur around noon on September 29, 2021, indicating movement of magma in the subsoil.
Around 3:20 p.m. HST on September 29, 2021, the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) detected a glow in the Kīlauea summit webcam images indicating that an eruption had started in Halema'uma'u Crater in the summit caldera of Kīlauea. Webcam imagery shows cracks at the base of Halema'uma'u crater generating lava flows to the surface of the lava lake which was active until May 2021.
The US Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) raises the Kīlauea volcanoes alert level from Watch to WARNING and its aviation color code from orange to RED as this new eruption and associated hazards are assessed.
Activity is limited to Halema'uma'u and the risks will be reassessed as the rash progresses.
The opening phases of eruptions are dynamic and uncertain.

In La Palma, the eruption of Cumbre Vieja continues. At around 11 p.m. Tuesday evening, lava tumbled over the coastal cliff.
This coastal cliff reaches about fifty meters at this point. The lava therefore first formed a talus of scree and when it reached the top of the cliff, the lava was able to flow into the ocean, constituting a coastal platform which is already advancing. of at least 50 meters into the ocean.

The total area affected since the start of the eruption is 476 ha. 981 affected infrastructures, of which 855 have been totally destroyed.
Seismicity continues to be recorded, south of La Palma, in the area of Fuencaliente, in relation estimated with the current emissions :
- 21 earthquakes (9-14 km deep), including 4 of magnitude 3.3 (mbLg), including one felt by the population
- the tremor remains very stable
- a slight uplift / deformation is observed towards the southwest
- the height of the eruptive column is 3500 m
A strong SO2 signal was detected by Sentinel-5P / Tropomi at a distance of 47.1 km from Cumbre Vieja with 43.70 DU of SO2 at an altitude of about 2 km. Estimated mass at less than 300 km: 42.7 kt.

Sabancaya's activity was maintained between September 20 and 26 at moderate levels, with 29 explosions per day, accompanied by ash plumes reaching 2,000 meters above the volcano.
The volcanic alert remains in Naranja, along with the non-accessible area of 12 km radius.
