The effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues and has remained essentially unchanged at modearte levels.
Two lava flows remain active and continue to effuse from the summit crater onto the N-NE flanks at moderate discharge rate.
A thermal GIF animation from 6 June confirms slowly advancing lava flows.
Intermittent moderate explosions continue to erupt from the summit vent. Ash emissions containing some amount of gas rose to estimated 4 km altitude.
A glow visible from the summit crater at night suggests rise of magma.
The Volcanic Alert Level remained at Yellow.
The warning bulletin states that there is a 2 km exclusion zone around the main crater.
