Pretty major eruption a couple of days ago in south Asia. Some amazing volcanic lightning was captured.

Lava has breached one of the 'berms' in Iceland. Doesn't look like much yet but shows that the slow and steady volcanic eruption is causing a slow and steady build up.

Massive explosive eruption has occurred on Raung volcano, of eastern Java, Indonesia, on 18 April 2024. Ash was sent 60k feet into the atmosphere and residents are being evacuated from lava flows.

Further eruption of Ruang volcano has occurred on April 30th, 2024 at 02:52 local time, producing pyroclastic flows. I only just learnt about this eruption, so please feel free to correct me or add further information.

Pity the BBC can't get its terms right and has dumbed down from using the word 'lahar'.

But then you perhaps have a journalist using English as their second language and an editor who’s not versed in vulcanology posting this story. Confused?

The term is a new one on me, and I earned a B in GCSE in geography at a grammar school! The closest we ever got was "pyroclastic flow" - but that's quite a bit hotter, of course. It could also be the fact that the teacher was hopeless: I remember he gave only the briefest attention to physical geography (as he "didn't like it"), and instead focused on the (to me, boring) human geography. We had more lessons on the Maasai tribe than we did on the entire topic of volcanoes and plate tectonics, for example.

Annoyingly I ditched geography for business studies at A level, as he was going to be the teacher of it... he then quit unexpectedly over the summer holidays, but it was too late to change. That was the end of my dream (at the time) of working in meteorology, as the careers advisor said A level geography was a must. Pah.

According to Geologyhub in his latest video, Ibu volcano in Indonesia could pop off at any moment.

A big fissure eruption close to Grindavik. By far the biggest we have seen, though it’s difficult to judge with the camera. A serious situation seems to be developing.

Yes, it is certainly impressive. There are quite a few live streams available but this one looks good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hg5ehw5zH1M  

This one (currently) shows the full length of the fissure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5JBPyrjmaE

And, going by the first link, a lot of lava too!
