Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity 

Kilauea (Hawai’i): The eruption continues both at the summit and on the eastern rift zone with no significant changes. The level of the summit lava lake in Halema’uma’u crater fluctuates, but rose to within around 9 m (30 ft) below the rim this morning, accompanied by inflationary tilt. If the progress continues, it might again overflow soon. Lava continues to flow from Pu’u O’o (the vent on the eastern rift zone) through a tube into the ocean at the eastern Kamokuna sea entry. No or only very small lava breakouts occur along its path. The sea entry consisted of 4 major entry points when observed last evening, and was producing mild littoral explosions.

Sabancaya (Peru): The new phase of explosive activity, which had started on 6 Nov., continues to produce intermittent, but frequent ash plumes of small to moderate size reaching up to 2000-3000 m height. Stronger emissions on 11 Nov were followed by ash falls in up to 40 km distance to the northeast, affecting many villages and towns in the Colca Valley, including Cajamarcana, Sallalli, Parjo, Achoma, Lari, Pinchollo, Yanque, Chivay, Coporaque, Ichupampa, Achoma, Tuti, Callalli, Sibayo, Tocra, and Canocota.
