Eruption of Ubinas volcano today
A new phase of intermittent explosions and associated ash emissions from the volcano started Saturday evening (20 June).
Ash emission yesterday evening
The new surge of activity has been accompanied by a rise of seismic activity since early June, characterized by earthquakes related to rock fracturing under the volcano and signals caused by internal fluid movements, both results of increased internal pressure.
A weak thermal anomaly had also become visible on satellite data since mid June, as more heat is being transferred to the crater of the volcano. This announced the rising of a new magma batch that is now causing the currently still small eruptions.
