The Instituto Geofísico del Perú (IGP) reported a few days ago that satellite images confirmed a new lava dome located in the northeastern part of the crater.
According to volcano observatory an area of the new lava dome is approx. 12,000 m².
The new lava dome growth is associated with increasing activity such as stronger explosions, higher thermal anomaly and constant incandescence that suggest continued rise of fresh magma accumulating as a new lava dome in the inner summit crater.
They dubbed it the "Iskay" (two in quechua language) as it is the second in the current eruptive process.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits.
