Lava flows continue to be active on the south-southeast slopes of the volcano.
Incandescent material is being ejected above Seloko Jongring crater and caused avalanches of material.
The Alert Level remained at 2.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 1 km distance from the main crater and 4 km on the SSE flank.
