The Mexican Civil Defense informed that during last 24 hours two ash eruptions have been registered as well as lahars without damages to the populations bordering to the volcano .
On slopes of the volcano a great amount of demolished trees was observed generated by the piroclastic flows, which increases the risk of pyroclastic avalanches in any future volcanic activity.
During the past week, several ash explosions have taken place, sending plumes to heights of up to 5,500 m a.s.l., drifting N and NW.

Reventador Volcano in Ecuador has started to erupt again on Tuesday. According to Hugo Yepez, director of Geophysics Institute of the National Polytechnical School (IGEPN), a lava flow inside the crater has appeared. There is an increased possibility of explosive events in the near future.

Fuego remains in a state of weak strombolian activity. During the past weekend, INSIVUMEH reported, 6 week strombolian explosions with ejection of incandescent material to heights of 20 m and more than 20 explosions producing mainly white steam have taken place. The lava flow on the S flank is still active, but its front does not advance significantly and is located at 300m distance from the crater.  

Between 16-18 June, strombolian activity had been more vigorous, sending incandescent blocks to up to 150 m height and destroying parts of the intra-crater cones around the vents.
On June 20, two lava flows descended yesterday from the central crater and have reached 150 and 200 m length. Small strombolian explosions continue from the crater.
