Seismic activity has gradually decreased recently and is reported low. Video data still showed incandescence from the crater and moderate gas-and-steam activity. Satellite images detected a thermal anomaly over the volcano but the intensity of the anomaly had also gradually decreased and has almost disappeared. On 12 December the Aviation Color Code was lowered to Yellow.

Effusive eruption of the volcano continues. Moderate seismic activity of the volcano was registered all week. Video data and satellite imagery showed that the lava flow continues to effusing on the eastern volcanic flank. Incandescence of the volcano summit, hot avalanches and gas-steam activity accompany the lava flow effusion. According to satellite data, a thermal anomaly was registering over the volcano on August 10, 12 and 15.
