The volcano's activity remains elevated. Mild to moderate explosions occur frequently from the summit vent, where viscous lava is being extruded and also produces an active lava flow, approx. 300 m long on the southwestern flank.
IGPEN reported dozens of explosions on most days, and up to more than 60 on a peak of activity on 8 May.
