The volcano is restless, emitting moderate amounts of steam and gas. Monitoring data shows that inflation of volcano continues.
It started in late 2019 and affects the middle to upper portions of the volcanic edifice, suggesting that magma is accumulating inside its conduits and might lead to a new eruption in a not-too-distant future.
The volcano's seismic monitoring network recorded three (3) volcanic earthquakes during the most recent 24-hour observation period. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 478 tonnes/day on 23 February 2020. (PHIVOLCS)
