The pyroclastic flows continue to be observed that traveled over the east-southeast flanks at about 6,561-8,202 ft (2,000-2,500 m) distance from the summit. The phoenix clouds are associated with this process.
Explosive activity is characterized by occasional vulcanian-type explosions that generated a dense ash plume, which reached approx. 12,000 ft (3,700 m) altitude and drifted E.
The seismic instruments record 4 earthquakes related to pyroclastic flows and 136 volcano-tectonic earthquakes.
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.
