Lava dome growth continues at Sheveluch.
Strong fumarolic activity, incandescence of the lava dome, explosions, and hot avalanches accompany this process. Satellite data from KVERT showed an extended ash plume up to 64 km east of the volcano, and a thermal anomaly over the volcano.
VAAC Tokyo issued an ash scattering advisory at an altitude of 3,700 meters, moving east.
The aviation code remains orange

The eruption on Suwanosjima continues, with an explosion on August 28 at 2:36 p.m. local time at Mitake crater; it was accompanied by a plume of gas 1,100 meters above the crater, before dispersing to the southwest.
The earthquake swarm linked to the Taʻū island continues.
Over the past 24 hours, around 30 earthquakes have been detected per hour by the new seismometers. The population felt 34 during the day, the strongest of M2.8 at 9:32 a.m. SST on August 27.
Satellite data shows no visible volcanic activity in the Ta'u area.
The volcanic alert remains at Advisory and the aviation code at Yellow.

At Ol Doinyo Lengai, the Radiative Power has been noticed by satellites more significantly since mid-July 2022.
Mirova reports thermal anomalies of 47 MW on August 24 and 215 MW on August 25 at 07:15.
The level of the crater floor rises regularly, following carbonatite lava emissions.
