The activity of the volcano continues at moderately levels.
On 23 June at 15:50 local time an explosive activity from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions reached 22,000 ft (6,700 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the east and causes ash fall on the volcano's slopes. Additionally recorded small to moderate explosions at regular intervals 8 per day.
The Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) recorded during 15-21 Jun 2020 216 volcano-tectonic earthquakes associated with magma rising.
Short-term electronic tilt monitoring on the southeastern and north flanks recorded a slight inflation.
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.
