Ground deformation measurements conducted on 17 May on the NE flank revealed 4 mm of inflation compared to the previous measurement on7 April. The Alert Level was raised from 1 to 2 (out of 5) due to the increased seismicity and inflation.
KVERT reported on 17 May that the Level of Concern Color Code for Bezymiannywas lowered to Yellow. Satellite imagery showed that the thermal anomaly decreased in size during 15-17 May. Hunters reported that a large mudflow, 200 min width, moved along the Sukhaya Khapitsa river on 17 May.

On 6 May, scientists from OVSICORI declared a Low Alert Level for Turrialba based on rapid changes during the previous three months, and intensified their fieldwork and data collection efforts. During aerial observation in February 2007, trees looked yellowish due to sustained gas emissions from the W crater.
