Summary of report week: USGS is listing 18 events, EMSC is listing 21 events and GFZ Potsdam is listing 19 events. You can view each of these listings below. No active category force storms. Max 8 actively erupting volcanoes over and above the 17 always erupting.
Using converted magnitudes (mb to Mw etc) USGS converts to 52 events and EMSC converts to 61 events. Potsdam events cannot normally be converted as the scale is not known.

Volcanoes

Volcano information gathered from various sources, including the Smithsonian Weekly Volcanic Activity Report from which confirmation of reports is taken.

A volcano is only included in the listing if there is significant ash above 1km height (white/steam clouds are not counted) or there is a significant lava flow. Crater incandescence, unless accompanied by the either of the preceding does qualify as an eruption.
