There was a magnitude 4.6 Earthquake overnight, the strongest so far. It was felt in La Palma and Tenerife (and La Gomera as well, I would imagine). It was centered on El Golfo bay, which is not the location of the existing eruption off La Restinga. This would strongly suggest that there may be another centre of eruption soon.

Superb set of pics. Cheers!
Cleveland volcano in the Aleutians has erupted with enough force to generate ash warnings for aviators:
but it appears that although Cleveland has been quite active over the last ten years, eruptions tend to be single isolated events at intervals, and the ash warning is already being reduced to 'watch' status.
Mount Etna has been reported erupting since wednesday with a new crater forming on the south east side.
