Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Colima (Western Mexico): The volcano’s activity remains above average. Vulcanian-type explosions from the summit crater occur at intervals of several hours and are sometimes very powerful, generating dense ash columns that rise 2-4 km, and cover the upper slopes of the volcano with bombs. Some of them also generate small pyroclastic flows descending the steep upper flank.
