SERNAGEOMIN recorded an explosion at the volcano that generated a dense dark ash plume, which reached approx. 16,110 ft (4,912 m)
altitude and drifted SE.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect a Pinto, Coihueco and San Fabiánarea area of about 3 km distance from the main crater on the SW flank and 5 km away on the ENE flank.
