Near-constant vulcanian activity continues from the summit crater.
According to Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Darwin vulcanic explosion occurred at 07:41 local time this morning that also generated small pyroclastic flow traveled over the upper slopes from which phoenix clouds are formed.
Constant ash emissions reach up to 13,000 ft (4,000 m) altitude and drifted E-SE.
Lahars (mud flows) could also occur if heavy rainfalls remobilise the fresh ash deposits.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 3 km distance from the main crater and 5 km on the SE flank and 4 km on the NE flank.
