Low-level eruptive activity of the volcano continues by near-constant ash emissions recorded during the 30 November.
The activity at the crater has been mostly small-to-moderate only, but near-constant a lot in frequency of explosions as INETER surveillance camera observed.
According to Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington an ash plumes reached approx. 5,000 ft (1,500 m) altitude and drifted SW.
The color of ash emissions was mostly brown (as can be seen in the webcam image), described as "earthy". This could mean that most of the ejected material might be from older lava rocks in the summit crater.
