Seismic recording on 4 June (CNGN station, INETER)
Seismic recording on 4 June (CNGN station, INETER)
The volcano might be entering a phase of reawakening. A seismic swarm of 49 low magnitude earthquakes and a pulse of volcanic tremor occurred on 4 June, INETER reported in a press release that day.
The seismic activity started 08:45 am (local time) on 4 June, increased until 10:30 and the eased again. At the moment, the seismicity is calm again. No further reports have been published by INETER, who has not raised the alert level, but recommended to limit access to the volcano's crater as a precaution measure.
Cerro Negro is a popular tourist destination, known for "ash surfing" on the steep ashy slopes. The last eruption of the volcano occurred in 1999.
