PHIVOLCS raised the alert level of the volcano following an increase in activity. Starting from 21:55 local time on 24 Nov, a series of phreatic explosions occurred from the summit crater, producing ash plumes that rose up to approx. 1 km.

An exclusion zone of 4 km radius around the crater was put in place, to prevent similar accidents as when 3 climbers were killed by a sudden explosion in the 1990s.
