No significant changes have occurred recently. The volcano remains active at moderate levels and produces a steam plume 800-1000 m high and occasional small explosions.
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
IG reported continued moderate activity with occasional (mostly unobserved) small explosions.
Monday, May 06, 2013
Activity has remained moderate with occasional explosions and possibly the emplacement of a hot avalanche or lava flow on the eastern flank, where a new hot spot on the latest MODIS satellite data can be seen, in addition to the summit where a lava dome is active.
Thursday, May 02, 2013
Last night, emissions of steam and some ash produced a column rising bout 1 km above the crater.
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Activity remains moderate with frequent small explosions detected on seismic signals and strong degassing producing a plume that was observed yesterday rising 800 m.
Thursday, Apr 25, 2013
Activity has decreased lately, with only occasional small explosions and weak steaming observed. The MODIS data show no longer a hot spot, suggesting that lava effusion has more or less stopped.
