KVERT reports that the "growth of the lava dome continues - strong and moderate ash explosions up to 4-6 km a.s.l., fumarolic activity and incandescence of the dome summit, and hot avalanches accompany this process. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano."
Tuesday, Oct 01, 2013
Activity continues at moderate levels with little changes. The viscous lava dome remains active and produces occasional small ash explosions and avalanches.
Thursday, Sep 12, 2013
The volcano continues to slowly extrude a new lobe of viscous lava from the dome. This process is accompanied by occasional explosions and ash emissions such as one this morning that produced a plume rising to 19,000 ft (5.8 km) altitude.

Accompanied by moderate seismic activity, a viscous lava dome continues to grow and produces small incandescent rockfalls and occasional ash emissions such as on the attached webcam picture this morning. Glow can be seen at night. ...
