Activity at the volcano has not changed significantly. The lava flow at the volcano's upper NE flank towards Cerro Chino remains active. This morning, it was approx. 150 m long.
The volcano observatory reported continuous spattering from the main vent in the summit crater with ejections reaching 10-15 m height. Seismic observations suggest that magma is continuously rising towards the surface through the main conduit.
