A new eruption that started already on 23 April has been producing lava flows from the summit vent. During the past days, this activity has increased.
A number of people have been evacuated from areas at less than 3 km distance from the volcano. The main hazard are pyroclastic flows that the volcano often generates when activity is elevated.
VSI keeps the volcano at alert level 3 (out of 4), at which it has been since 3 Sep 2013.
