The seismic instruments recorded approx. 350 volcano-tectonic earthquakes today.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 3.5 km distance from the main crater.
An impressive video, attached below, depicts a continuous degassing activity on 12 July as steam and gas emissions have been venting from the crater.
