The first eruption of the volcano in 2017 ended last Monday. After having been stable for several weeks, tremor started to drop and both lava emission ceased quickly in the morning of 27 Feb at 10:00 local time.
The eruption was declared over when also pulsating gas emissions stopped a few hours later.
However, volcanologists do not exclude the possibility that a new eruption could start soon again, because inflation of the volcanic edifice continues to be detected along with elevated diffuse CO2 emissions. Both parameters suggest that magma supply continues from a deep source and could lead to new eruptions within short time (days to few weeks). A similar scenario occurred during the eruption in Aug-Oct 2015 when activity ceased and restarted two times.
