The eruptive activity produces frequent small to moderate ash emissions that reach up to approx. 19,000 ft (5,800 m) altitude and drifted S-SW.
The lava continues to keep the flow active onto the southeastern slope at moderate rate. Collapsing parts of the flow generated a glowing rockfalls and caused avalanches of material.
According to FIRMS, 17 thermal anomalies was detected in the last 24 hours.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits.
