Activity Bulletin Saturday 29 August 2015 , 16:30 (Local Time)
The eruption that began on August 24, 2015 at 18:50 continues.
An aerial survey was conducted in the morning. The two cinder cones continue to build. Lava lakes are still present but less high in the cones (beware this may simply be related to the different point of view or to the construction of cone in the last 24 h) and fountains escape from them..
After a short stint in a tunnel, the AA lava flow reappears and stretches about 1.5 km thickener a lava field that implemented early in the eruption. A large plume of gas rises from the vent up to about 3000 m altitude. The smell of SO2 is perceptible to the Maido.
From the point of view of the recordings made by the equipment from OVPF the level continues for about 36H.
