The effusive-explosive eruption at the volcano continues at elevated levels.
While no fresh direct observations are available from the extremely remote island, satellite data show ongoing strong ash emissions to 12,000 ft (3.6 km) altitude as well as a large SO2 plume originating from the volcano, which means that the magma output rate remains high.
