Ash emission in the early afternoon
After the latest paroxysm from the New SE crater early yesterday morning, the volcano has continued to produce mild strombolian activity, mainly from the eastern summit vent of the SE crater complex.
Strombolian eruption at the eastern vent early today
The saddle vent on the summit of the crater, which has been protagonist during the recent paroxysms, has been producing steam and ash emissions, sometimes relatively intense and forming columns of several hundred meters in height, but only few incandescent ejections. This activity seems to have been on the increase during today's afternoon.
What will be next remains to be seen...
