The activity of the volcano continues at high levels. As we mentioned in the last update, the renewed activity began on 27 November characterized by continuing ash emissions.
A powerful vulcanic explosion occurred at 09:45 local time this morning that produced a dense dark ash plume, which rose approx. 13,123 ft (4,000 m) above the summit.
Soon after the eruption, moderately strong ash rain of lapilli set in, covering all surfaces as local people informed on social media.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows and lahars could affect an area of about 2 km distance from the main crater.
