Effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues.
Due to ongoing strombolian activity a glowing lava spatter is being ejected to an approximate height of 150 to 300 meters above the summit and caused moderate to strong avalanches of material towards the Seca, Taniluyá, Ceniza, Lajas and Honda direction.
INSIVUMEH reported that lava flow has started to descend on the slopes and continues to be active on the southwest slopes of the volcano, currently about 550 m long.
Additionally recorded weak to moderate explosions at regular intervals of 6 to 9 per hour that generated a grey ash plume which reached approx. 14,763-15,419 ft (4,500-4,700 m) altitude. Ash fall is extending about 10-20 km to the west and northwest direction of the volcano. Small fumarolic activity was observed.
