The eruption continued without significant changes during the day of Oct 1st. Lava fountaining from several vents aligned in the upper part of the crater continued at fluctuating intensity, producing a weak ash plume, which nevertheless rose to approx. 1 km and spread laterally in the absence of wind, gradually filling the valley with a thick layer of dust.
From the lower vents at the crater, several lava flows continued to flow down-slope, most notably from the two vents that had opened yesterday and earlier today.
The ocean entry remained active, but seemed to loose power during the evening, maybe even stopped to be alimented.
Towards the late evening, visible activity as well as volcanic tremor decreased a bit.
