The volcano currently continues at unstable conditions characterized by a constant degassing and sporadic ash emissions.
Gas-steam plumes containing some amount of ash reached approx. 19,000 ft (5,800 m) altitude and extended to the west-northwest of the volcano.
The seismic activity is focused mainly under the Arenas crater and beneath the NE and SE flanks of the volcano with a decreasing trend this week.
The alert level for the volcano remains at "yellow".
