Explosive strombolian activity is relatively week at the moment; the volcano observatory counted 20 explosions for the past 24 hours, generating ash plums that rose up to approx. 500 m and drifted 10-12 km S and SW before dissipating. Many of them were accompanied by shock waves and jet-engine like degassing sounds that lasted up to 2 minutes. Incandescent bombs were seen to reach to 150-200 m height above the crater.

As the magma output rate increased strongly, the explosions have turned into pulsating lava fountains and a lava flow began to travel down the Las Lajas ravine on the SE flank, currently reaching about 1200-1500 m length. ...
