Is the volcano in Hawaii still flowing lava?
The most recent eruption within the Kīlauea's summit caldera lasted from December 20, 2020 to mid-May 2021. The water lake that was previously forming in Halemaʻumaʻu disappeared and was replaced by a lake of lava. As of May 26, the Hawaii Volcano Observatory announced that the Kilauea Volcano is no longer erupting.
There were 73 confirmed eruptions at some point during 2020 from 68 different volcanoes; 27 of those were new eruptions that started during the year. A stop date with "(continuing)" indicates that the eruption was considered to be ongoing as of the date indicated.
The Island of Hawai'i, with four active volcanoes, is liveliest. Between 1912 and 2012, there were nearly 50 Kīlauea eruptions, 12 Mauna Loa eruptions, and one Hualālai intrusion of magma. Since September 29, 2021, an eruption has been ongoing within Halema'uma'u crater.
Mt Etna: The most active volcano on Earth - BBC Travel.

Detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity, but generally there are around 20 volcanoes actively erupting on any particular day; this is a subset of the normal 40-50 with continuing eruptions.
Kīlauea's last eruption took place in December 2020, when a water-filled lake that had formed at the crater evaporated, replaced by a lava lake.
Yellowstone is not overdue for an eruption. Volcanoes do not work in predictable ways and their eruptions do not follow predictable schedules. Even so, the math doesn't work out for the volcano to be “overdue” for an eruption.
A statement on the USGS site reads: “Parts of the surrounding states of Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming that are closest to Yellowstone would be affected by pyroclastic flows, while other places in the United States would be impacted by falling ash.
Scientists say Mount St. Helens is the most active volcano in the Cascades and the most likely to erupt again, perhaps in this generation, but they can't predict years in advance when or how big it will be. There have been two significant eruptions at Mount St. Helens in the past 35 years.
