IGEPN reported that the lava flows continue to be active on the south-eastern slopes of the volcano. Incandescent avalanches of material continues to be observed.
On 1 June Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington recorded explosive activity from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions that reached 20,000 ft (6,100 m) altitude. Volcanic ash is dispersed towards the west and causes tephra on the volcano's slopes.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits.
