An isolated small explosion occurred in the evening around 19:15 local time, generating a small ash plume rising a few 100 m and throwing some lava bombs onto the upper flanks. Apart from this event, no other explosions were observed during the night and the following two days. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

A light ash plume can be seen rising from the top of the volcano where the active vent of the 2018 eruption lies. The volcano forms a prominent landmark, rising to 2462 m elevation from near sea level out of the otherwise flat landscape of the Albay Gulf. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)

The helicopter keeps the engine running while we unload everything to return as soon as possible, before the weather worsens; fortunately, the rotor blades are at safe height.
