As feared by the inflation signal in the past days, the relative calm at the volcano has come to an end and new magma arrived at the vents earlier, causing another overflow of lava.

Most notably new lava flow has started on the southern side of the eruption area to advance westwards through new land. It has already reached the Camino Real de Todoque and is descending parallel to Camino Aniceto and Camino La Majada roads.
On his way, more houses, plantations and roads were destroyed. The arrival of the lava flow in the Las Norias area is imminent.
