The tremor signal has started to rise sharply, which could mean that the 23rd paroxysm of the New SE crater is about to occur.
Fri, 30 Mar 2012, 13:25
Since this morning, weak Strombolian activity and ash emissions have been observed at the New SE crater. This could be the start of a build-up towards another paroxysm if the eruption pattern is the same as during most of the previous 22 eruptions since early 2011. At the moment, tremor signal is quiet low, but as the past has shown, it could change very quickly. The next paroxysm could probably occur anywhere between today and the next 2 weeks.

Recent satellite views show that a another lava dome has formed in the summit crater over the past week. AVO is raising the volcano color code to ORANGE and volcano alert level to WATCH to reflect this increase in activity. AVO has received no other reports of activity at the volcano.
