The Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) recorded during 11-17 May 2020 413 volcano-tectonic earthquakes associated with magma rising. Additionally recorded 12 explosions at regular intervals per day.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits, but are not expected to threaten inhabited areas.
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.
