Explosion Sep 29. 2012 (INSIVUMEH)
At 05:18 hours local time yesterday, a rumbling was heard from the Nima 1 valley above the observatory. Most of the time, the dome is degassing with a 400 m steam plume.
A moderate explosion occurred at 05:07 hours and sent a gray ash column to 800 meters height. The lava flow front on the southeast side entering the Nima 1 valley is steaming.
