During the past hours, activity from the New SE crater has been increasing significantly and is currently showing intense and near-constant strombolian explosions. It seems very much as if it is heading for another paroxysm in the next hours if not less.
The volcanic tremor signal is also on an increasing trend.
During most of the day, when visibility allowed views, there were small and irregular ash emissions, likely related to smaller explosions from the New SE crater. In the evening, constant glow and intermittent explosions were visible. These have been increasing significantly during the past few hours.
