After the vigorous vulcanic explosion today, the activity of the volcano continues at high strombolian activity from the summit vent.
Scoria is being ejected above the crater (the height is unknown and was not reported) and caused avalanches of material. Much of the ejected incandescent material slid down along the flanks as glowing rock falls reaching the sea.
According to Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin, constant ash emissions reach up to 18,000 ft (5,500 m) altitude and drifted NW.
