Incandescent blocks are extruded as up to 15 m high spines (?) from the lava dome inside the crater of the "Domo Caliente" (the glowing dome). Explosions create gray steam and ash plumes of up to 1,4 km height. Since February, a small lava flow on the SE flank of the lava dome is active, producing small avalanches of blocks detaching from its front, that accumuate in a delta at about 1450 m a.s.l.
