Activity Bulletin Friday, September 4th, 2015 at 09:00 (Local Time)
The eruption that began on August 24 continues.
The pedestrian recognition performed yesterday (September 3) shows that the phenomenon is still very active on the site. There is always observed numerous projections and castings continue to thicken the lava field about 2 km long.
Many ephemeral mouths are periodically visible all along the tunnel that holds the flow for the first 50 to 100m.
The RSAM reflecting the seismic energy of the event is experiencing a new rise for about 24 hours.
The flow rate and the gas stream are constant.
