The activity of the volcano continues at moderately levels.
On 10 June at 08:00 local time an explosive activity from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions reached 25,000 ft (7,600 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the southwest and causes ash fall on the volcano's slopes. Additionally recorded small to moderate explosions at regular intervals 18 per day.
The Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) recorded during 1-7 Jun 2020 598 volcano-tectonic earthquakes associated with magma rising. The largest volcano-tectonic earthquakes were recorded with magnitude M 2.4-M 3.6 located southwest and northeast of the volcano at depths between 12 km a 15 km.
Short-term electronic tilt monitoring on the southeastern and north flanks recorded a slight inflation since 23 May.
Thermal anomaly associated with lava at the summit crater was observed in satellite images.
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.
