Activity decreased during 12 April, but has quickly picked up again. The volcano continues to show intermittent small to moderate vulcanian explosions with ash emissions of up to 3 km above the crater, accompanied by loud detonations and shock waves. In addition, strombolian activity were reported by the observatory.
Lava blocks rolled down on the southern flanks of the volcano to distances of approx. 1 km. No reports of ash fall were received.

The lava flow from 10-11 April appears to have stopped.
