Another ash explosion occurred at 12:10 local time today, followed by a smaller one at 12:41 and 13:16 local time.
The first explosion was relatively violent and produced a plume rising approx. 3000 m visible from Manado city 15 km to the north and the explosion sound caused people in nearby Tomohon to run out on the streets.
The following 2 explosions were much smaller and produced plumes only a few 100 m in height. Volcanologists stationed in Kakaskasen said that volcanic tremor was recorded almost continuously.
