The Turrialba volcano continues to record sustained seismic tremor of variable amplitude as well as frequent but small explosions with moderate ash emissions, aerosols and gases forming eruptive plumes reaching 500 meters to 1km above the active crater (Crater West).

Sakurajima Volcano, Japan

The Japanese volcano Sakurajima is situated in southern Kyushu where the deadly M6.4 earthquake struck mid April 2016. Did this quake enhanced its activity? There is no clear relation but it has since exploded several times, the latest on April 30, 2016. The largest historical eruptions of Sakurajima took place during 1471-76 and in 1914.
