On 5 June CENAPRED recorded two moderate explosions at 23:00 and 23:02 local time. Plumes of ash rose to an altitude of 24,000 ft (7,300 m). Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the south and southwest and causes ash fall on the volcano's slopes.

Scoria is being ejected above the crater and caused avalanches of material.
Additionally recorded 344 emissions of gas and steam plumes with minor ash content and 453 minutes of tremor.
