One week after the most recent paroxysm of the volcano, it's activity seems to be picking up again, judging from increased heat emission signals and strong seismic signals, probably related to rockfalls.
In its daily update, the volcano observatory however mentioned only 4 rather weak explosions that produced ash plumes rising 500 m during the past night.
