The volcano remains active at low to moderate levels (seismicity and emissions). It continues to produce mild ash emissions that usually drift westwards and rise approx. 1 km from the crater.
The government continues to train local people from potentially endangered zones, responsible for small groups, to be prepared and react in case of emergency. Measures include lectures on contingency planning on family level, emergency kits and evacuation route maps.
