1986 eruption
Following months of increased seismic activity, a seismic swarm with quakes every minute started on 7 May, and was followed by a small phreatic explosion the next day. The vent was on the upper NW flank at an elevation of 3,800 m. It ejected a small amount of fine ash and partially destroying vegetation in an area 200 x 100 m, but otherwise caused no damage. New fumaroles were later found above 8 May crater.
