The eruption produced a dense ash column which rose 3,300 ft (1,000 m) above the crater and drifted S-SW.
On 10 March a seismic network detected approx. 90 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.
