The activity of the volcano continues at moderate levels and has remained essentially unchanged.

The volcano continues to produce frequent weak-to-moderate vulcanian-type eruptions at regular intervals of 9 to 12 per hour. Ash plumes reached 14,400 ft-15400 ft (4,400 m-4,700 m) altitude and extended about 20 km to the west and southwest of the volcano.
Scoria is ejected to an approximate height of up to 300-400 meters above the crater and caused weak to moderate avalanches of material towards Seca, Ceniza, Taniluya, Trinidad, Las Lajas and Honda ravines.
Near-constant incandescence continues to be observed from the summit crater.
