Activity has been elevated during the past days. Several explosions and / or dome collapse events have sent ash plumes to about 20,000 ft (6 km) elevation during the past days.

An explosion and/or partial dome collapse produced an ash plume rising to 15,000 ft (4.7 km) last night and drifting east (Tokyo VAAC).

Activity of the growing lava dome after the recent larger collapse on 27 June has remained elevated. Smaller rockfalls and possibly explosions have occurred over the past days, possibly as a result of re-adjustments of the young collapse scar. Several minor ash plumes have been detected by VAAC Tokyo.

Accompanied by moderate tremor levels, the lava dome continues to grow and produce hot avalanches on the western flank. Strong degassing accompanies this process. (KVERT)

A phase of intense activity occurred last night starting at 19:10 UTC, and lasting for about 40 minutes. The activity was probably a major collapse of the dome and/or accompanied by explosions. It produced a large ash plume rising to about 10-12 km altitude (VAAC Tokyo) into the atmosphere. Due to cloud cover, no direct observations could be made. ...more [read all]

Seismic activity has decreased, classified as weak by KVERT. This suggests the active dome is in a phase of relative calm.

An explosion occurred last night at 21:02 UTC lasting for 6.5 minutes and sending an ash plume to an estimated altitude of about 30,000 ft (7-8 km), KVERT reports. The eruption was not observed directly, but inferred from seismic data.

The activity of the growing lava dome continues with little changes. KVERT reports moderate seismic activity, moderate gas-steam activity and incandescence.

A possible explosion or partial lava dome collapse produced a modest ash plume yesterday rising to 12,000 ft (3.7 km) altitude (VAAC Tokyo). KVERT reports no significant changes and continues to record moderate tremor levels, indicating that magma continues to rise and slowly build up the lava dome.
