The eruptive activity produces frequent ash emissions that reached up to approx. 22,000 ft (6,700 m) altitude and drifted W-NW.
Lahars (mud flows) occurred as heavy rainfalls remobilised fresh ash deposits and traveled downslope.
The lava continues to keep the flow active onto the southeastern slope at moderate rate.
A near-constant glow visible from the summit crater at night suggests continued rise of the fresh magma.
