No significant change in the activity has occurred during the past 24 hours and the effusive eruption has remained essentially unchanged.
Small lava fountains, about 15 m tall, continue to reach the cone height and intermittently overshoot its height.
Lava flows have advanced in less than 100 meters since the last update and continue at a very slow discharge rate.
The interferometric data, measured during 25-26 Dec, confirmed the ground expansion related to magma supply inside the volcano's conduits. The ground between the southern rim of the Dolomieu crater and the Château Fort crater has been deformed by 20 cm.
The volcanic tremor continues at fluctuating levels.
