Popo with glow from the summit seen early on 31 Aug (CENAPRED)
Weak steam explosions occur at frequencies of about 1 per hour. The largest reach 1 km height and contain small amounts of ash, such as at 22:03 on 29 Aug, 00:57 and 02:38 local time on 30 Aug. Glow from the crater is visible at night suggesting that the lava dome is continuing to grow slowly. CENAPRED also registered 3 small volcano-tectonic quakes at 19:51, 19:58 local time on 29 Aug and 10:37 on 30 Aug.
