Frequent explosions of small to moderate size continue to erupt from the summit crater producing ash plumes that reached up to 15,000 ft (4,600 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed toward the NE, NW and SE.
Incandescence continues to slide down along the southern slope at about 500 meters distance from the summit.
The volcano also produced pyroclastic flows (gravity-driven mass flows) that traveled over the southwestern slopes at about 400 meters distance from the summit.
