The activity is characterized by "only" venting of small to moderate ash from the active vent area. A satellite image from today shows an ash plume that reached the Bay of Plenty area.
The seismic activity including volcanic-tectonic tremor continues at low levels.
The constant glow is visible from the summit crater at night suggesting rise of magma with temperature of about 500-600°C.
The venting phase follows short-lived ash emission episodes over the past few weeks at the volcano.
Volcanic Alert Level remains at level 2 and the Aviation Colour Code remains at Yellow.
