Based on volcano monitoring data and visual observations during 1 Jan-13 Sept, the volcano observatory PVMBG reported that the activity at the volcano decreased significantly.
Its currently stable condition suggests that there is a delicate equilibrium. Therefore, the alert level for the volcano was lowered to "green".
A continuous degassing activity continues at the summit vent characterized by "only" venting of emissions of steam and gases.
The seismic network recorded approx. 500 volcano-tectonic earthquakes during this period. This is likely reflecting continued magma flux within the volcano edifice at low intensity.
Surface temperatures continue at reduced levels, detected by Modis satellite, that indicates a decreased batch of magma inside the volcano's conduits.
The warning bulletin states to avoid activities in the crater area of the volcano for climbers and tourists.
The last explosive eruption at the volcano occurred on 13 June 2019.
