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.
