The eruption from the Cordón Caulle rift zone continued at a low level. A lava flow reached the valley of the Nilahue River, and 2 lava flows advanced to the N margin of the W crater.
Some areas were covered in pumice and gray ash deposits. During 23-24 February plumes observed with a web camera rose 1 km above the crater; clouds prevented views on 22 and 25-26 February. Satellite images showed ash plumes drifting 60-100 km N and E during 22-23 February. Clouds prevented clear satellite views during 24-26 February. Crater incandescence was observed on 26 February.
