Effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues.
IGEPN reported that small pyroclastic flow traveled over the northeastern slopes, as can be seen in the thermal image.
The lava flow on the northeast flank remains active, currently about 300 m long.
Incandescence continues to be observed from the summit crater.
Explosive activity continues associated with blocks ejected away from the crater towards the northeast direction. Near-constant ash emissions reached up to 15,000 ft (4,600 m) altitude and drifted W-NW.
