An increase in seismic activity has occurred today. A steam plume can be seen rising above the volcano and a hot spot at the summit continues to be visible on MODIS satellite data, suggesting continuing lava extrusion.

IGPEN characterizes the activity as moderate with seismic activity mainly related to internal fluid movements as well weak pulses of tremor and explosion signals. The volcano is hidden in clouds most of the time, but a thermal anomaly has become visible at the summit again on recent MODIS satellite data, possibly related to a recent small effusion of lava there.
