The eruptive activity of the volcano continues at moderately levels.

An explosions at the volcano generated an ash plumes, which reached approx. 29,400 ft (8,967 m) altitude and drifted S and SW.
No significant changes are expected on the following days. Active lava dome is growing with diameter approx. 280 m that can lead to its collapse associated with small pyroclastic flows.
In case of rainfall, the population is recommended to stay away and avoid driving on the road that crosses the channel of this creek due to lahars (mud flows).
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 12 km distance from the crater.
