The effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues at high levels.
The eruptive fissure opened on the western flank continues to feed the lava flow at high rate (attached video below). The lava flow, which increased in length (currently about 2,850 m long), has changed its direction towards the south where has burned the local vegetation and destroyed the empty house in El Patrocinio village. The warning bulletin states that the flow could affect inhabited areas soon.
Moderate-to-strong strombolian-type explosions occurred from the Mackenney summit crater accompanied with dense ash plumes that reached an estimated altitude of 9,800 ft-11,400 ft (3,000 m-3,500 m). It extended about 7 km to the south of the volcano.
