Increasing trend of the volcano continues over the past ten days as elevated surface temperature was detected on 10 January likely caused by new batch of magma rising inside the volcano's conduits towards the crater.
Dmitry Melnikov from the volcanological institute KVERT reported that expected formation of lava flows occurred today as lava effusion begun in the summit crater and started to descend on the northern slope of the volcano. A new lava flow length is currently about 400 m long.
