The eruptive activity at the volcano slowly decreased.
Only two eruptions occurred within the last 24 hours compared to 11 explosions in the past 48 hours.
Emissions of steam and gas continue to emit up to 1 km above the fumarolic vents and currently dominate the volcano.
Lava flows continue to build the island which is measured by 182 meters arranged in the north-south direction and by 173 meters in the east-west direction with a total surface area of about 6 acres and estimated height of 10 meters above sea level.
