The volcano generates near-constant emissions of ash, gas and steam from the summit vent that rose to estimated 14,000 ft (4,300 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the east and south.
The explosive eruption of the volcano is accompanied by frequent steam glow visible from the summit crater at night. Glow suggests continued rise of fresh magma that could be rising inside the volcano's conduits.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
