Eruptive fissure, opened on the southwestern flank of the volcano, generates the lava flow that continues to be active and branches off into two arms, currently about 475 m and 75 m long.
Weak strombolian-type explosions are recorded with scoria thrown at an approximate height of 100 meters above the Mackenney summit crater.
A fumarolic activity is detected with small amount of ash and extending about 1 km to the south of the volcano.
The seismic instruments record internal tremor associated with explosions and lava flows and magma rising within the volcano edifice.
