The volcano continues to extrude viscous lava, feeding the lava dome occupying the summit crater and a new lava lobe on the upper eastern flank.
Collapses from this lobe and the dome have been producing frequent smaller to medium-sized pyroclastic flows on the eastern and sometimes northeastern flank. A moderately large pyroclastic flow yesterday at 11:45 local time reached approx. 3.5 km and produced an ash plume that rose to approx. 4 km altitude.
Since 26 March, lava has also been overflowing from the dome onto the northeastern flank, which is why pyroclastic flows have now also been affecting this sector.
