JMA reported two events at Showa Crater (at Aira Caldera?s Sakurajima volcano) during 24-28 July. One of the events generated an ash plume that rose 2 km above the crater rim. The Alert Level remained at 3 (on a 5-level scale).

During 26 July-1 August HVO reported that the lava lake continued to rise, fall, and spatter in Kilauea?s Overlook crater. Webcams recorded incandescence from long-active sources within Pu'u 'O'o Crater. The 61G lava flow, originating from a vent on Pu'u 'O'o Crater's E flank, continued to enter the ocean at Kamokuna. Several large cracks running parallel to the coastline spanned the width of the delta. Surface lava flows were active above the pali and on the coastal plain about 2 km upslope from the gravel emergency route.
