Surveillance cameras observed small to moderate explosions that generated a plume of ash that rose to an altitude of 10,498 ft (3,200 m) and drifted S-SW.
Material is ejected above the crater and caused weak avalanches of material on the south, southeast and southwest flanks of the Caliente dome.
Incandescence continues to be observed from the crater.
