According to INSIVUMEH, a "very strong and prolonged" earthquake occurred under the volcano this morning at 05:25 local time. Paintings in houses were bouncing and small landslides occurred in steep river bed sides. The earthquake also triggered small avalanches on the steep flanks of the active Caliente lava dome.
Last night, an explosion with visible incandescent material occurred at 18:57. During the night, intermittent glow could be seen from the summit area of the dome. Incandescence was also observed from the upper eastern flank of the dome, where a blocky lava flow continues to be weakly active.
