The crisis, followed the increasing seismic activity, started on 7 September at 16:54 local time represented by a weak ground deformation in the summit area. The ground has been uplifted by less than 1 cm. Earthquakes were located mainly beneath the northern rim of Dolomieu crater (only about 2-3 quakes per hour on average since the seismicity ended).
A new eruption is not ruled out, magma injection may come unexpectedly as happened in October 2019 or December 2020.
