Although detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity, generally there are around 20 volcanoes actively erupting at any particular time. Last week, the Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (WVAR) reported 22 actively erupting volcanoes and 43 continuous erupting volcanoes. We are in a phase of increased volcanic activity.
Overall there are 43 volcanoes with ongoing eruptions as of the Stop Dates indicated (July 24, 2018), sorted with the most recently started eruption at the top.
An eruption marked as “continuing” does not always mean that the activity is continuous or happening today, but that there have been at least some intermittent eruptive events at that volcano without a break of at least 3 months since it started. An eruption listed here also might have ended since the last public data update, or at the update time a firm end date had not yet been determined due to potential renewed activity.
Our Earth is releasing fire around the world. It could happen right next to you. Be prepared and get ready!
