Ubinas volcano (Peru): continuing eruption at moderate levels

Following the relatively large explosion yesterday, the volcano has remained calm today so far.
IGP's latest report mentions that while activity has been overall on a decreasing trend over the past weeks, yesterday's explosion was preceded by a 50 hours-long swarm of hybrid earthquakes, that resulted from the accumulation of new magma under the vent. Once the eruption had finished, the seismic activity dropped back to normal levels.
The explosion itself ejected blocks and bombs to up to 1,5 km distance onto the NW upper flank of the volcano.

According to scientists, the intensity of the continuing magmatic eruption is only moderate. Other monitored parameters (deformation, gas emissions, surface temperatures) show few or no variations. The volcano's visible activity is likely to remain similar in the near to medium future. Its current main hazard are such sudden explosions in the immediate vicinity of the crater and ash falls in farther downwind areas.
