Explosive activity remains very weak. During the past 24 hour observation interval, INSIVUMEH only counted 3 small explosions. [more]
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
Activity has remained stable and at relatively low levels over the past days. The volcano has few weak to moderate strombolian-type explosions every now and then (5-10 per day), which produce small ash plumes rising up to 5-700 m above the crater. [more]
Monday, May 06, 2013
Activity remained at low level, characterized by few (6 during yesterday) strombolian-type explosions that produce gray ash plumes rising 300-500 m above the crater. [more]
Friday, May 03, 2013
Activity has further decreased with very few explosions reported since yesterday, and no activity at the lava flows. ... [more]
Thursday, May 02, 2013
