The activity from the Mackenney crater continues. White and blue fumaroles, mainly composed of water vapor rise and drifts southwest. During low light, incandescence from strombolian-type explosions were observed with ejecta being thrown at heights of 50, 75 and 100 meters above the crater. Two lava flows are currently present, one 250 meters long, observed on the west flank and the other southwest 100 meters long. Seismic stations recorded tremor associated with the rise of magma and gases.

INSIVUMEH report strombolian activity continues at the Mackenney crater. Incandescent material exploded 5-25 m above the crater with a white to blue degassing plume rising and drifting to the south. The north-west lava flow continues to advance. Seismic stations register constant tremor which INSIVUMEH notes is associated with the rise of magma and gases.

According to INSIVUMEH, the southbound lava flow is now 200 m in length. Incandescence can be seen during hours of poor light, with strombolian activity sending ejecta at heights between 10, 15 and 75 meters above the Mackenney crater. The seismic stations record tremor associated with the rise of magma, as well as occasional explosions.

INSIVUMEH report the continued strombolian activity occurring from the Mackenney cone, with ejecta been thrown at heights between 10 and 75 meters. Two lava flows are reported; one flowing in the northwest direction towards the Cerro Chino and another flowing to the south. Seismic stations record tremor associated with the rise of magma and the presence of gases, as well as occasional explosions.
