The effusive-explosive eruption of the volcano continues.

The lava flow on the southwestern eruptive fissure has increased in length, currently about 525 m long.

Weak-to-moderate strombolian-type explosions continue from the Mackenney summit crater with ejecta thrown at an approximate height of 20 and 50 meters.

The seismic instruments recorded internal tremor associated with explosions and lava flow and magma rising within the volcano edifice.
