Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Darwin (VAAC) reported that explosive activity continues from the active crater with near-constant ash emissions.
An explosion occurred at 09:28 local time this morning. Ash column reached up to 12,000 ft (3,657 m) altitude.
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.
