SVERT reported that ash emissions were identified in a satellite image today.
An ash plume reached 10,000 ft (3,048 m) altitude and extended about 30 km to the W-NW of the volcano.
Satellite images from 12, 23, 25 and 29 June measured thermal anomalies in the summit crater.
Therefore, the alert level for the volcano was raised to "yellow" today.
