Explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,240 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
Explosive-effusive eruption of the volcano continues. According to video and satellite data, the lava flow continues to effusing on the south-eastern flank of the volcano (along Apakhonchich chute). Satellite data by KVERT showed an intensive thermal anomaly over the volcano; an ash cloud drifted for about 500 km to the south-west of the volcano on April 23-24.

In recent days, the activity of the eruption has decreased. Even on the night of April 28, emissions in the crater have been observed infrequently.
As of April 30, there was a night appearance. Light emission from the crater were observed. In the apical part, on the east side, there was a small lava flow. Sometimes the flow front was crumbling, and the red rocks tumbled down. The lava flow is not fixed.
Apparently the eruption ends …
