The explosive eruption at the volcano continues at roughly regular intervals.
Surveillance cameras of San Salvador's Ministerio de Medio Ambiente are being observed ash eruptions from the summit crater.

A video of a high ash plume has been published in social media by local observers from La Cruz community (see attached video below).
