A new and very small eruption is occurring, with ash plumes rising only a few thousand feet above sea level. This follows the unrest in August, when the Alert Level was raised to 4, as there were concerns about a repeat of the large explosion in 2015. This subsequently declined, the Alert Level dropped to 3, where it remains.
