Strombolian explosions have been gradually returning at the volcano. 5 were recorded between 18-19 and 13 during 19-20 Nov. They produced gray ash columns of 200-500 meters above the crater and dispersed up to 8 km towards south and southwest. The explosions ejected incandescent material to 100-150 meters above the crater and generated weak avalanches on the upper slope.
The lava flow toward Ash Canyon is still active and had increased to 800 meters length this morning.
