The activity of the volcano continues at moderate to high levels. Another powerful explosion occurred this night at 03:00 local time that generated a dense dark ash plume, which reached approx. 9,000 ft (2,743 m) altitude and drifted E.

Incandescent material is ejected above the crater that caused avalanches of material and glow over the summit.

The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
