The lava dome remains active and produces hot avalanches on the western and eastern flanks. KVERT reports moderate seismic activity, incandescence of the volcano summit and medium to strong degassing.

Activity continues with little changes. Video data showed that the lava dome is still active and produces incandescence and hot avalanches on the western and eastern flanks. Strong and moderate gas-steam activity accompany this process. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano. (KVERT)

The slow growth of the lava dome continues with no changes reported by KVERT: Moderate seismic activity, incandescence of the volcano summit, hot avalanches on the western and eastern volcanic flanks, and strong gas-steam activity accompany this process.

A volcanic ash plume rising to 15,000 ft (4.5 km) altitude from the volcano was reported last night by Tokyo VAAC. Most likely, a combination of an explosion and small lava dome collapse (dark area below glowing summit dome in webcam image) has produced it.

Latest quakes in Greece
: Greece has a lot of earthquake activity, but most of them occur around the margin of the Aegean microplate. The Cycladic islands are located in its center and therefore seismically comparably quiet.
