A second strong explosion occurred this afternoon, around 2:45 pm, apparently similar in size as the one from the morning.

Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Washington reports an ash plume reaching 20,000 ft (7 km) altitude and moving SE. Images taken from the island confirm a tall ash column rising at least 4 km according to estimates from the volcano observatory.
