According to volcano observatory IGEPN near-constant vulcanian-type explosions producing frequent small to moderate ash emissions reached up to 20,000 ft (6,100 m) altitude and drifted S. It seems that pyroclastic flows were generated that traveled over the southeastern slopes, as can be seen in the image.
According to MIROVA Detection System a high thermal anomaly (109 MW) was detected in satellite images yesterday.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits.
