INSIVUMEH recorded weak to moderate strombolian-type explosions at regular intervals of 6 to 8 per hour that generated a grey ash plume which reached approx. 14,763 ft-15,420 ft (4,500 m-4,700 m) altitude. The plumes drifted towards the north and northeast direction.
Ashfall was reported in several areas downwind including Santa Sofía (12 km SW), Morelia (9 km SW), Panimaché I and II (8 km SW).
Incandescent material is ejected to an approx. height of 100 and 200 meters above the crater and caused avalanches of material.
