Activity of the volcano continues at elevated levels.
KVERT reported that on 10 January at 15:17 UTC KVERT a difference between thermal anomaly and background temperature was 79,8 °C identified in VolSatView satellite data likely caused by a new batch of magma that could be rising inside the volcano's conduits towards the crater.
Formation of lava flows in the summit crater in the near future is a possibility if activity at the volcano increases further.
The last explosive eruptions at the volcano occurred on 12, 14 and 18 September 2018.
