Weak sporadic ash emissions have been observed yesterday, mixing with the usual white degassing plume. In addition, a small SO2 plume from the volcano could be seen on satellite data. This could be the result of a new magma intrusion, or be a still result of the previous crisis about a month ago, when hundreds of people were evacuated but no eruption followed.
SERNAGEOMIN has not commented on new activity and maintains alert level yellow.

Thursday, May 30, 2013
The seismic crisis continues, but has decreased in intensity. An eruption in the near future still remains a likely scenario, SERNAGEOMIN scientists emphazise, as this decrease in energy could be temporary. It is impossible to predict whether this is a question of days or weeks, or even if an eruption actually will occur. ... [meer...]
