Strombolian activity from Mackenney summit crater continues, began to increase gradually last night and is still continuing at the time of this update.
The explosions generate glowing lava bombs ejected to an approximate height of 200 to 250 meters above the crater.
The lava flow on the S-SW flank remains active, currently about 650 m long and caused glowing and hot avalanches of material.
The seismic station records elevated internal tremor associated with deggasing and near-constant strombolian explosions.
